The AJP publishes several publications:

1. The Australian Journal of Pharmacy: The AJP is the nation’s longest-running and highest-circulating print publication to the pharmacy sector. It continues, through innovation and quality journalism, to be pharmacists’ trusted source of pharmacy-related news.

The AJP is published monthly (excluding January), and is distributed at the beginning of the month.

The AJP is delivered directly to pharmacists who are members of PDL. PDL is a national professional body for Australian pharmacists that provides Professional Indemnity insurance.

It’s where all our stories are housed – some 35 per week – and where we poll our readership on the issues that affect them. For more info about the website including registration, click here.

On the website you can also find the AJP Forum – a secure place for pharmacists to share ideas on the burning topics of the day, many of which are generated by our articles. Access to the Forum requires website registration.

Our growing range of high quality CPD-accredited offerings are also online – including audio – with options to complete CPD activities and print or save certificates of completion. Access to CPD activities requires website registration.

4. The AJP Daily e-newsletter is delivered into your email inbox six days per week, Monday to Saturday inclusive. It is published by the AJP’s team of journalists and expert commentators. It keeps pharmacists connected and up-to-date across the widest range of political, business, regulatory and clinical topics.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia does not own the AJP; PDL owns the Australian Journal of Pharmacy, via its publishing subsidiary APPco.

While the AJP is owned by PDL, the AJP’s editorial team is wholly independent from PDL, its board and its members.

The AJP is Australia’s leading independent source of pharmacy news, views, education and information. Our team of journalists works hard to offer an unmatched depth of independent coverage around the issues that directly impact pharmacists.

The Australian Journal of Pharmacy is not a peer-reviewed or academic journal. The AJP covers issues that affect the business of pharmacy, together with the latest drug and clinical developments, and new ethical, OTC and complementary medicine products.

The AJP’s CPD education articles are reviewed and accredited by a recognised accrediting organisation.

Pharmacy-related articles can be submitted to the editor, Chris Brooker chris.brooker@appco.com.au

Submissions should be sent in a Word or Word-compatible file format.
