Optimizing efficiency and outcomes
As has occurred in other health care areas (i.e., medicine and nursing), a group of clinical and social pharmacy practice journal editors gathered in Granada, Spain to discuss how journals could contribute to strengthening pharmacy practice as a discipline. The result of that meeting was compiled in these Granada Statements, which comprise 18 recommendations gathered into six topics: the appropriate use of terminology, impactful abstracts, the required peer reviews, journal scattering, more effective and wiser use of journal and article performance metrics, and authors’ selection of the most appropriate pharmacy practice journal to submit their work. Access the Granada Statements: The Granada Statements are currently endorsed by the following journals:Research in Social and Administrative, Exploratory Research in Clinical and Social Pharmacy, International Journal of Pharmacy Practice, International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy, European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy, Farmacia Hospitalaria, Journal de Pharmacie Clinique, Journal of Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice, Ars Pharmaceutica, Pharmacy Education, Revista Brasileira de Farmacia Hospitalar e Serviçios de Saude, Canadian Pharmacists Journal.
They have been published concurrently in 12 journals, all as open access publications.
