International Pharmaceutical Abstracts

International Pharmaceutical Abstracts (IPA) provides comprehensive coverage of worldwide pharmacy literature. Such literature refers to articles on drugs and their properties, pharmacokinetics, manufacturer, research, and use; and pharmacy practice. Therefore, in addition to technical and scientific articles, those discussing the professional practice of
pharmacy or the therapeutic and clinical use of drugs are included. Pharmacy publications are abstracted and indexed cover to cover. In addition to articles, coverage includes letters, columns, notes, communications, and editorials if there is substance to the discussion.

The IPA database covers more than 335 international pharmaceutical, medical, cosmetics, and other health-related journals, including all United States pharmacy journals. Articles from major medical and special biomedical journals are covered when a clinical or therapeutic experience or when pharmacy practice is discussed. AHFS meeting presentation abstracts are also included since 1988.
