Archives of pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety is an online open access, peer-reviewed journal creating a bridge between both pharmacology and epidemiology.
This journal benefits from the methodology developed in general epidemiology and may further develop them for applications to pharmacoepidemiology where some areas are altogether unique to pharmacoepidemiology, e.g., pharmacovigilance. Pharmacovigilance is a type of continual monitoring of unwanted effects and other safety-related aspects of drugs that are already placed in current growing integrating markets.
Aim and Scope
This journal aim is to provide an international forum for the communication and evaluation of data, methods and opinion in the discipline of pharmacoepidemiology and provides an estimate of the probability of beneficial effects of a drug in a population and the probability of adverse effects. It concentrates on clinical patient outcomes from therapeutics by using methods of clinical epidemiology.
