Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
I would like to invite you to contribute to a Special issue on “Deprescribing” to be published in the online journal Pharmacy (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/pharmacy). Pharmacy is indexed by the “Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)”, the core collection of Web of Science.
This Special issue will include contributions from researchers from all over the world dealing with a variety of issues such as:
- Definitions and frameworks for deprescribing
- The imperative for deprescribing in an age of medicalization and polypharmacy
- Barriers and challenges to deprescribing
- Policies and incentives supporting deprescribing
- Successful implementation and practices supporting deprescribing
Contributions can be in the form of reviews or research articles and should be 10–20 pages (A4) long, with 10-20 bibliographic references and several figures (graphs, flow-charts, etc.). They will be pre-checked by the guest editor and peer reviewed in the usual fashion. The whole collection will be published in book form.
