Scope and policy
The mission of Revista Cubana de Farmacia is to publish articles on pharmacology, related sciences and Cuban pharmacopoeia, dealing with the use of our rich flora in the drug industry and the abundant fauna of our seas and their possible use in the drug manufacture.
The editor directly distributes the journal in printed format to the subscribers (ISSN 0034-7515). Contributions in Spanish, English and Portuguese regardless of their country of origin are accepted.
Once the manuscript is delivered, it can not be submitted to any other journal or source of publication. The authors are entitled to withdraw their article after the formal communication of their decision of not publishing it.
articles undergo a peer-review process where every article is submitted to two
or more peer-reviewers, who issue their verdict. The editorial committee will
take the final decision on the publication of the manuscript regardless of the
decision made by the peer-reviewers.
Original research articles, literature review articles, case reports or case presentations as well as any other type of scientific communication are accepted for evaluation after the approval of the editorial committee. The editorials will be assigned and approved by the editorial committee.
The maximum length should be 10 pages for original papers, 15 for review articles and 6 for short communications and case reports including tables and figures.
The articles will be presented in white paper, using Arial 12 pt font, one and a half-spaced, on one side of the sheet, without any handwritten correction or crossing-out. All the pages will be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals starting from the first page
References: The references will be listed following the Vancouver style, double-space typed in French-indented paragraph in a separate page. They will be numbered in the order they appear in the text and identified with superscript Arabic numerals in the text. Relevant and updated published documents will be cited.
