About The Journal

International Journal of Drug Delivery & Controlled Release (JDCR) of Sciforce Publications is an interdisciplinary field of Pharmaceutical Chemistry. JDCR publishes original research articles, book chapters, reviews, letters and short communications, rapid communications, and abstracts. Drug delivery and Controlled Release refers to approaches, formulations, technologies, and systems for transporting a pharmaceutical compound in the body. It may involve scientific site-targeting within the body, or it might involve facilitating systemic pharmacokinetics; in any case, it is typically concerned with both quantity and duration of drug presence. Drug delivery is often approached via a drug's chemical formulation, but it may also involve medical devices or drug-device combination products. Drug delivery is a concept heavily integrated with dosage form and route of administration. Drug delivery technologies modify drug release profile, absorption, distribution and elimination for the benefit of improving product efficacy and safety, as well as patient convenience and compliance. Drug release is from: diffusion, degradation, swelling, and affinity-based mechanisms. Some of the common routes of administration include the enteral (gastrointestinal tract), parenteral (via injections), inhalation, transdermal, topical and oral routes. Many medications such as peptide and protein, antibody, vaccine and gene based drugs, in general may not be delivered using these routes because they might be susceptible to enzymatic degradation or can not be absorbed into the systemic circulation efficiently due to molecular size and charge issues to be therapeutically effective.


 Aim and Scope 

Journal of Drug Delivery and Controlled Release (JDCR) journals and research papers are a gateway to the community Pharmaceutical science experts, researchers and peers. While adhering to the international standards of online publishing, JFP aims to publish high quality, informative, scientific and well-researched content.
