“Current Pharmaceutical Design” is a leading international journal, which publishes frontier reviews in important fields of drug discovery. The journal is published by Bentham Science Publishers and has been widely acclaimed because of its excellent standards and the high quality of publications.

Each issue is published under a Guest Editor who is an authority in the field and who is responsible for soliciting top class articles covering various important aspects of the field from leading authorities.
Bentham Science Publishers is currently publishing 42 issues of the journal annually. These “theme issues” contain articles in important fields of current research activity written by eminent experts in the field. The Guest Editor is responsible for soliciting top class articles covering various important aspects of the selected topic from leading authorities in the field. In view of current demand for the journal, the publishers are soliciting additional topic themes relevant to pharmaceutical design.
