Phytotherapy Research

Phytotherapy Research is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing original research papers, short communications, reviews, and letters on medicinal plant research. Topics include pharmacology, toxicology, and the clinical applications of herbs and natural products in medicine, from case histories to clinical trials, including studies of herb-drug interactions and other aspects of the safety of herbal medicines.

Short communications dealing with the pharmacology and screening of crude or uncharacterized extracts will be considered for publication only if they are clearly of interest to the journal’s international readership and are not deemed more suitable for a regional audience.

The journal does not publish agricultural, phytochemical, structure elucidation, quality control or botanical identification papers unless they are directly pertinent to the pharmacological effects of overall safety of plant based medicines currently in use.

Papers concerned with the effects of common food ingredients and standardized plant extracts, including commercial products, are particularly relevant, as are mechanistic studies on isolated natural products.

Phytotherapy Research operates on an online submission and peer review system that allows authors to submit articles online and track their progress via a web interface. Authors are welcome to submit the names and contact details of up to three suggested reviewers, using the online system.

As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief of Phytotherapy Research is Elizabeth M. Williamson (University of Reading).
