Pharmaceutical Engineering technical article submission and review process

  • All submissions, including artwork and tables, must be original, unpublished work, or you must have reprint permission from the copyright holder.
  • All technical articles must be submitted through Scholar One, our online portal.
  • All technical articles are subject to peer review; author revision is required in most cases.
  • Once published, all articles become the property of ISPE.
  • For more information about article content and the submission process, refer to our author guidelines.

Editorial process

  • All submitted articles are reviewed by the PE review board and the Knowledge Network Council. You may also specify other groups and/or individuals.
  • Reviewers’ feedback is compiled and sent to the corresponding author for requested revisions.
  • Corresponding author then submits the revised draft and figures to Scholar One.
  • Revised draft undergoes a thorough editorial review, which is returned to the corresponding author for approval.
  • If any of the associated companies require it, the finished article must go through a legal review. This may delay publication.
  • Publication is not guaranteed until the editor in chief makes a final decision.
