Drug Discovery Today
Drug Discovery Today is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal that is published by Elsevier. It was established in 1996 and is published in 12 monthly double issues. The journal publishes reviews on all aspects of preclinical drug discovery from target identification and validation through hit identification, lead identification and optimisation to candidate selection.
In 2004, the Drug Discovery Today journal series expanded with the launch of four online-only review journals: Drug Discovery Today: Disease Mechanisms, Drug Discovery Today: Disease Models, Drug Discovery Today: Therapeutic Strategies, and Drug Discovery Today: Technologies. The four journals cover developments across the breadth of therapeutic areas and technologies relevant to the drug discovery and development pipeline.
