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All submissions, including artwork and tables, must be original, unpublished work, or you must have reprint permission from the copyright holder.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.
