We are pleased to announce that the 1st Asian Young Investigator Symposium on Pharmaceutical Science and Technology (AYISPST 2019) & the 1st Young Editorial Board Conference of the Asian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences (AJPS) will be held during September 20-22, 2019 in Chengdu, China. We are very pleased to invite top scientists and young investigators from around the world in the fields of industrial pharmacy, physical pharmacy, micromeritics, biopharmaceutics, novel drug delivery systems, formulation technology and pharmaceutical excipients to present their most recent research achievements and share their cutting-edge views on pharmaceutical sciences. The symposium will provide a unique opportunity for people who work in pharmaceutical science and technology in Asia to network and showcase their research in podium and poster presentations as well as through a trade exhibition. We warmly invite you to participate in AYISPST 2019 and we look forward to welcoming you in Chengdu in September 2019.

Asian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences (AJPS, ISSN 1818-0876), is a bimonthly English journal in ScienceDirect as the official journal of Asian Federation for Pharmaceutical Sciences (AFPS), which publishes reviews, full research papers and short communications in all areas of pharmaceutics. The journal was founded by Shenyang Pharmaceutical University and published by Elsevier B.V. with no page charge. On Oct 26th 2007 when AFPS was founded, AJPS was designated as the official journal of AFPS by the chairman of AFPS, Prof. Tsuneji Nagai. To date, with the great efforts offered by all the editorial board members and worldwide pharmaceutical scientists, AJPS has successfully published 14 volumes (one volume per year) since 2006 and the content of published papers has covered almost all areas of pharmaceutical sciences. Most importantly, dramatic breakthroughs have been achieved recently: AJPS has been selected for coverage starting with volume 10 (1) 2015 in the Clarivate Analytics products: Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). AJPS is the first journal in Pharmaceutics indexed by SCIE in China. The impact factor of AJPS in 2018 is 4.56.
