With this issue, Pharmacognosy Communications enters into its second year. In its first year of publication, Pharmacology Communications has successfully established itself as a new but respected journal for the dissemination of information in all aspects of pharmacognosy and medicinal plants. The editorial team and I have worked to establish the quality and reputation of the journal. We have striven to publish only well written, quality, novel studies which are of interest to a wide audience interested in pharmacognosy. This policy has resulted in a publication of 36 manuscripts (7 reviews, 23 original research articles and 6 research letters) with an acceptance rate of approximately 25 %. Thus, we have established a quality journal and undertake to continue to maintain and improve this quality. This policy will ultimately benefit our authors, as we strive to establish a strong impact factor when this is calculated in the future.Read more. . .
