Aims & Scope

Medicinal Chemistry, a peer-reviewed journal, aims to cover all the latest outstanding developments in medicinal chemistry and rational drug design. The journal publishes original research, full-length/mini-review articles, short communications, letters and guest-edited thematic issues covering recent research and developments in the field. Articles are published rapidly by taking full advantage of Internet technology for both the submission and peer review of manuscripts.

Medicinal Chemistry covers all areas of medicinal chemistry, including biological evaluation of novel biologically active compounds, diagnostic agents, or labeled ligands employed as pharmacological tools, structural biological studies using X-ray, NMR, etc. of relevant ligands and biological targets, aiming at the investigation of molecular recognition processes involved in the action of bioactive compounds. The journal also covers chemical and analytical techniques used in rational drug design, synthetic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry of small molecules and naturally occurring compounds, structural characterization, drug-likeness, optimization of structure and properties, the effect of molecular structure on the distribution, pharmacokinetics, and metabolic transformation and toxicology of bioactive compounds including design, synthesis, and evaluation of novel types of prodrugs, quantitative structure-activity relationships, modelling studies, docking studies, new and emerging drug targets, pharmacogenomics, high-throughput screening, and combinatorial chemistry.

Medicinal Chemistry is an essential journal for all researchers involved in drug design and discovery.
