Preparation for the sending

Articles suitable for publication in the journal Anales de la Real Academia Nacional de Farmacia, are those that cover the traditional fields of pharmacy. Submission of a manuscript implies that the paper has not been submitted to or published in any other journal, in the same or similar form, in Spanish, English or in any other language. On having submitted his manuscript to consideration, the authors agree in that the article copyright is transferred to the Real Academia Nacional de Farmacia (RANF), always and when it is accepted for publication. Authors are required to obtain permission to reproduce previously copyrighted materials from other sources. Manuscripts previously published in a congress, symposium, or conference can be submitted for consideration provided that the authors inform the editorial office at the time of submission and that the manuscripts have realized a substantial revision. The editors reserve the right to make small changes to the manuscript, if necessary, to adjust them to the norms of the Journal or improve the style, respecting naturally the content of the article. The quality of the article will be attested by two referees, indicated by the scientific editor.

Articles should conform to one of the categories below:

1) Articles, for communicating original research. Articles should follow the usual form of presentation, including introduction, material and methods, results and discussions, conclusion, acknowledgements and references, as appropriate for the work being submitted. They should have a maximum of 25 pages, including figures, tables, diagrams, etc. All pages should be numbered.

2) Reviews, for communicating progress in a specific field of pharmacy. They should have a maximum of 40 pages, including figures, tables, diagrams, etc. All pages should be numbered.

All manuscripts should be submitted through the online submission system in DOC or DOCX Microsoft Word format. The graphical images (figures), tables and videos, will be sent as attached files separately. The graphical images, must be sent in jpg or png format, with a minimal resolution of 640x480x72 px, with a name of file that facilitates his location (ej. Fig01.jpg, fig02.jpg, etc.). The legends of the tables will be included by each of those and in the only file of attached text. The legends of graphical images and videos, they will be sent in the only file of text attached and numbered in the same order that the previous attached files. Schemes of chemical structures should all be of the same size, so that they can be uniformly reduced and to be sent numbered in the only attached file of text, which schemes and legends include. The file size submission must be less than 4 MB (advised less than 2 MB). In the case of extreme difficulties encountered when submitting online, manuscripts can be submitted as e-mail attachments to the editorial office.

Multimedia Files

Multimedia files, such as 3-dimensional computer models, videos, and interactive demonstrations, will be published as online extra to the manuscript. The preferred formats are flv and wmv. The authors must present the electronic complementary information (ESI) with the article as attached, on-line or e-mail. It is admitted also, the sending for CD to the address: Academia Nacional de Farmacia, Farmacia 11, 28004 Madrid (Spain). The additional material will be evaluated at the same time as his article and with the same standards.

The Web address of the ESI will be referred to in the article, which will provide the context in which the ESI should be viewed.

Authors, must consider what type of material can be used in HTML or PDF, in order that it could be connected by his article across a hyperlink. Authors should, where possible, supply data in the usual file types. Other formats may be supplied, and every effort will be made to use these where possible. If you are providing an unusual file type, please provide to the Editorial Office with details of any additional software that would be required to view the files. Such software should be available freely, preferably via the web.

Authors can present in color the graphical files, which for this section will be in high resolution, with a minimal size of 1280x1024x96 pixels. The accepted formats are jpg and png. In case of sending text files that include voluminous information and experimental additional details, it must use the format DOC or DOCX of Word. CIFs of the structure(s) to be reported in the intending publication, previously submitted to relevant Data Center, can also be submitted as ESI. Submission should be done via e-mail at the time of submission of the typescript. Authors also can send molecular graphs in 3D in color..

Manuscripts Preparation

All manuscripts should be typed double spaced and used Times New Roman 12pt font.

The first page should have the title of the article in spanish and english, the name and the address of the authors, abstract in spanish and english that does not exceed 100 words and 3 keywords in spanish and english. Authors names will be written complete by names and surnames and the directions later of the authors. If the authors have different directions, they were numbered by a superindex (consult in The corresponding author should be the one submitting the article on line and should be identified by an asterisk (*) and an e-mail (only one e-mail).

Journal abbreviations should be used, as defined by the Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index.

References should be numbered consecutively throughout the text, in the form of: (1) (1,5) (1-8); The list of references should be placed at the end of the text without parenthesist. Foot notes are not admitted.

References it must be placed ultimately and numbered coinciding with the text (without parenthesis). It is necessary to mention the surname of every author, before the initials of the first name; later, there must consist the title of the journal (in italic), the year (in bold font), the volume (in italic) and finally the page. It is necessary to mention books of an analogous way, including the name of the publisher, the locality and year of the publication. Examples:


1. Smith, J.; Weston, D.; J. Am. Chem. Soc. 1987, 50, 1001.

Books without editor

2. Pittman, M.; Yeomans, D. R.; Comet Halley: Once in a Lifetime; Americam Chemical Society; Washington, DC, 1995; p 23.

Books with editor

3. Golay, M. J. E. In Gas Chromatography; Desty, D. H., Ed.; Butterworths; London, 1958; p 36.

Whenever possible, authors should follow IUPAC recommendations and use the International System of Units.
