Frequently Asked Questions

What is CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology?
CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology (CPT:PSP) is a sibling journal to the well-established high impact journal, Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics (2014 Impact Factor, 7.903, Journal Citation Reports, Thomson Reuters, 2015). The journal provides a unique international forum for scientists in the pharmacometrics and systems pharmacology space. CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology publishes advances in quantitative methods as applied in pharmacology, physiology, and therapeutics in humans with a common focus on the application of these two areas on drug development. The journal is published in partnership with Wiley. CPT:PSP is an official journal of the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (ASCPT) and the International Society of Pharmacometrics (ISoP).

How is CPT:PSP different from CPT?
While Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics will continues to publish papers in these fields if they apply to a broader audience and general interest, CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology provides authors a second publication choice for papers that are targeted more uniquely to the pharmacometrics and systems pharmacology communities.

What type of papers does CPT:PSP publish?
