Pharmaceutical science encompasses all aspects of the discovery, development, and use of drugs and therapies for the treatment of diseases, disorders, and physiologic states. The Pharmaceutical Science Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers, early stage research and even peer reviewed or published journal articles. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps pharmaceutical science scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of overlapping interest, including physical and organic chemistry, engineering, biochemistry, biology, and the clinical sciences, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly to facilitate the discovery and development of the safest and most efficacious medications.
The Pharmaceutical Science Research Network (PharmSciRN) aspires to provide a comprehensive panoply of scientific research and advancements in both the field and profession. Through PharmSciRN, SSRN aims to host research that will contribute to the safe and effective discovery and use of medications to improve global health.
Many of the papers included in the Pharmaceutical Science Research Network are preprints: early stage research papers that have not been peer-reviewed. The findings should not be used for clinical or public health decision making and should not be presented to a lay audience without highlighting that they are preliminary and have not been peer-reviewed.
