This journal aims to provide its readers with a swift, yet complete, current awareness service. This is achieved both by the scope and structure of the journal, key features of which are:
• Careful selection of relevant abstracts (and other bibliographic data) from the latest issues of 4,000 leading international biomedical journals.
• The arrangement, within each issue, of abstracts into separate chapters devoted to a specific topic. The journal covers all aspects of clinical and experimental pharmacology, methodology and studies on the pharmacokinetics and mechanism of action of exogenous substances. Studies on specific drugs and agents as well as their affect on particular organs and organ systems are extensively covered. Studies relating exclusively to environmental and occupational health are excluded but are covered in Section 46: Environmental Health and Pollution Control and in Section 35: Occupational Health and Industrial Medicine. For toxicological information consult Section 52: Toxicology.
• Detailed author and keyword indexes to allow the reader to locate items of special interest.
