The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (a.k.a. JPET) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering pharmacology. It has been published since 1909 by the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET). The journal publishes mainly original research articles, and accepts papers covering all aspects of the interactions of chemicals with biological systems.

John Jacob Abel founded ASPET in December 1908 when he invited 18 pharmacologists to his laboratory in order to organize a new society.[1] At the end of the meeting Abel announced the establishment of JPET.[2]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal received a 2016 impact factor of 3.867.[3]

In 2017, it was announced that the entirety of the journal would be indexed in Meta.[4]
