About Us


A Quarterly, Open-access & Peer-reviewed International Journal

    The International Journal of Reverse Pharmacology and Health Research (IJRPHR) is an Quarterly open access journal publishing evidence-based, scientifically justified research, which publishes original articles, Reviews, case reports, systematic and meta-analysis etc relating to reverse pharmacology, traditional medicine research of all regional cultures and Health research aspects(Public health).


    International Journal of Reverse Pharmacology and Health Research (IJRPHR) has mainly focused on reverse pharmacology and applying those to health research in terms of clinical and public health research. The journal allows free access (Open Access) to its contents and permits authors to self-archive a final accepted version of the articles on any OAI-compliant institutional / subject-based repository. 


    The Journal provides a global platform for discussion, perspectives, and research on Reverse pharmacology and public health work of both Eastern and Western complementary medicine and welcomes articles from all medical perspectives. The scope of Reverse pharmacology is to understand the mechanism of action at multiple levels of biological organization and to optimize safety, efficacy and acceptability of the leads from natural products, based on relevant science/health research/Public health research.


      Reverse pharmacology can be a bridge for translational medicine from traditional medicine to clinical practice. Such an effort would make healthcare delivery locally relevant and may lead to global discoveries in natural products. But it is essential that we develop multidisciplinary R and D teamwork and infrastructure for reverse pharmacology.


    The term "health research," sometimes also called "medical research" or "clinical research," refers to research that is done to learn more about human health. Health research also aims to find better ways to prevent and treat disease. Health research is an important way to help improve the care and treatment of people worldwide.

Broad focus

        1. Reverse Pharmacology

        2. Health Research (Public health)

    A lot of scopes to Understand the mechanisms of action at multiple levels of biological organization, To optimize safety, efficacy, and acceptability of the leads in natural products, based on relevant science. Despite a vast potential and possibilities only a very few success stories have been reported and documented in Journals and electronic versions so far. Most of the work in this field has remained within clinics of traditional practitioners or confined to academic research laboratories, Improper experiential documentation, Lack of proper identity and implementation of Good Laboratory Practices, Absence of Phase II dose optimizing studies, and Lack of political and financial support.

Areas of particular interest include:

    • 1. Reverse Pharmacology
    • 2. Reverse pharmacology of traditional Medicines like Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Homeopathy, Yoga, Sowpa riga, Tibetian Med, Chinese, African medicine etc.
    • 3. Pharmacological and toxicological aspects of Western and Traditional Medicines
    • 4. Health research includes basic scientific and clinical research especially focusing on Traditional indigenous (India & Srilanka) medical techniques and other country traditional practices, therapeutic procedures, medicinal plants, and traditional medical theories and concepts etc;
    • 5. Multidisciplinary study of medical practice and health care, especially from historical, cultural, public health, and socioeconomic perspectives;
    • 6. International policy implications of comparative studies of medicine in all cultures, including such issues as health in developing countries, affordability and transferability of health-care techniques and concepts;
    • 7. Transferring clinical viable product into research
    • 8. Translating scholarly ancient texts or modern publications on ethnomedicine.
    • 9. Scopes and challenges in Reverse Pharmacology (RV) and implementing into public health systems through Health research modules.
    • 10. Forward pharmacology and clinical pharmacology research on traditional medicine of the world, e.g. chemistry, pharmacology, molecular mechanism, systems biology, proteomics, genomics, metabolomics, safety, quality control, clinical studies of traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, Unani, Arabic, and other ethnomedicine.
    • 11. Pharmacovigilance of phytomedicines or Traditional Medicines
    • 12.Dietary Therapy/Nutrition Supplements;
    • 13. History, Philosophy and Social-Cultural Aspects of Traditional Medicine.
    • 14. Re-discovery of the paradigm of reverse pharmacology Medicinal Plant Clinical Effect


    IJRPHR also considers Quality Control and the procedures for the preparation and characterization of traditional medicines, as well as the authentication of dietary supplements, as basic requirements to guarantee efficacy, safety, and reproducibility. We encourage submissions which present observation and experimental investigation in translational and clinical studies, animal experiments, and in vivo/in vitro studies. Particular emphasis is given to the pathophysiological basis and the cellular-molecular mechanisms(reverse pharmacology) that underlie the beneficial effects of Traditional and Complementary Medicine.

    The International Journal of Reverse Pharmacology and Health Research (IJRPHR)  will consider for publication a broad range of scholarly contributions, including original scientific research papers, review articles, editorial comments, social policy statements, brief news items, bibliographies, research guides, letters to the editors, book reviews, and selected reprints. We now publish research and review papers, both unsolicited and solicited. We may publish opinion or commentary papers which are by invitation only.
