Abstract/Summary

Conclusions This editorial illustrates major requirements that authors should con- sider before submitting articles to BJP (see Table 3 for authors' check- list). It also highlights some common shortcomings in natural product pharmacological research, which could be prevented if experiments have appropriate planning and experimental design. BJP is a leading journal in the pharmacological field, in which important new advances are published, and thus, novelty is a major determinant of acceptance for publication. Studies showing the effect of natural products, without a substantial investigation into the mode of action, are not considered. Articles limited to repetition of well- known data or that report similar pharmacological activities of similar chemical compounds are generally not suitable for BJP. The editors of BJP recognize the wealth of opportunity for thera- peutics that comes from the natural world and are keen to publish excellent natural product pharmacology that advances understanding of mechanisms of both physiological and pathological processes or that identifies potential new therapeutics.
