Editorial Board

Drugs in Context publishes rigorously peer-reviewed original research, reviews and other articles to inform and improve disease management across all therapeutic areas.

The in-house Editor-in-Chief is responsible for commissioning review articles, managing peer review of commissioned and unsolicited manuscripts, technical editing and checking of proofs before publication. The external Editorial Board plays a vital role in suggesting article ideas, and in facilitating/conducting peer review.
