Drug is the substance used in the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of the disease and for restoring, correcting or changing metabolic functions.
Records of medicinal plants date back to the ancient Chinese, Hindu, and Mediterranean civilizations. Ancient Greek physicians such as Galen used various drugs in their profession. In the 16th century AD, drug discovery began to develop rapidly as Western medicine began to emerge from its long sleep in the Dark and Middle Ages. In 1546 the first pharmacopoeia (list of drugs and their preparation) appeared in Germany. It is accepted that the pharmacy profession started with the establishment of the Pharmacists' Association in London in 1617. Pharmaceuticals are among the oldest modern pharmaceuticals. Morphine was first used in about 1804, ether in 1842, chloroform and cocaine in 1860. Other substances isolated in the 19th century include strychnine (1817), quinine (1820) and nicotine (1828). Joseph Lister first used phenol (carbolic acid) to prevent infection in 1865. For centuries, human beings chose to benefit from plants to meet their primary treatment needs. This has inspired the development of many drugs that are officially prescribed today. One of every four medicines available in pharmacies around the world contains either phytochemicals or synthetic derivatives of these compounds as active ingredients. The International Journal of Plant Based Pharmaceuticals focuses on current developments in the field of plant-based pharmaceutical compounds and is a meeting point for researchers working in this field and all stakeholders interested in the field in question.
Aims & Scope
Researchers are cordially invited to submit their manuscripts to the International Journal of Plant Based Pharmaceuticals (IJPBP), an international and peer-reviewed open access journal devoted to the publish original research papers, review articles, short communications, letters to the editor/commentary and guest edited single topic issues in all areas of plant-based pharmaceuticals in English.
Electronic versions of articles are published immediately and continuously once the manuscripts have been accepted. The average time between submission and final decision is 70 days and the average time between acceptance and final publication is 15 days. IJPBP does not charge authors who submit articles. The journal also does not charge authors for article processing or printing.
