Aims and scope
BioDrugs covers the development and therapeutic application of biotechnology-based pharmaceuticals and diagnostic products for the treatment of human disease. The Journal includes:
- Definitive reviews on topics relating to the development and use of biotechnology in healthcare and the management of disease.
- Systematic reviews that collate empirical evidence to answer a specific research question, using explicit, systematic methods as outlined by the PRISMA statement.
- Original research articles on the clinical development and therapeutic application of biotechnology-based pharmaceuticals and diagnostic products.
- Leading/Current Opinion articles providing an overview of contentious or emerging issues and key regulatory and ethical issues.
- Adis Drug Evaluations reviewing the properties and place in therapy of biotechnology-based drugs.
- Adis Biosimilar Briefs summarizing key characteristics and clinical use of biosimilar drugs.
Additional digital features (including animated abstracts, video abstracts, slide decks, audio slides, instructional videos, infographics, podcasts and animations) can be published with articles; these are designed to increase the visibility, readership and educational value of the journal’s content. In addition, articles published in BioDrugs may be accompanied by plain language summaries to assist readers who have some knowledge of, but not in-depth expertise in, the area to understand important medical advances.
All manuscripts are subject to peer review by international experts. Letters to the Editor are welcomed and will be considered for publication.
