Earlier this year, we asked you how we could develop our publications for our members. We’ve taken note, and you’ll be seeing some changes to how often you receive The Pharmaceutical Journal and Clinical Pharmacist, and the content in these publications.
When we conducted a survey in February 2015, 66% of members told us that they wanted The Pharmaceutical Journal to be a larger, more in-depth publication that they receive in the post once a month. In response to this, we are turning The Pharmaceutical Journal from a 32-page publication 40 times per year, into a new 64-page publication, 12 times per year. The first edition will be published at the end of October.
The Society’s prestigious Clinical Pharmacist will also be changing. It will become a monthly peer reviewed publication to be circulated to all Society members. The first edition of this revised publication will be published in January next year, but all members will start receiving Clinical Pharmacist from mid-October.
This means all members will receive The Pharmaceutical Journal and the Clinical Pharmacist once a month, receiving one of the publications every two weeks.
You still can keep up-to-date with the latest pharmacy news on The Pharmaceutical Journal website, www.pharmaceutical-journal.com, which will continue to be updated daily. You can also follow The Journal on Facebook and Twitter.
Ash Soni, President of the RPS, said "Members have told us what they want and we have listened. We are excited about launching our new Pharmaceutical Journal. We believe we have created an attractive and informative new publication that will explore many of the key issues and interests for our members as well as keeping them up to date with developments within the pharmacy profession. Our Clinical Pharmacist publication will be the highest circulating clinical pharmacy publication in the world, giving all of our members access to the latest CPD and learning articles. I hope that you’re as excited about these changes as we are."
