The style of the Honors Final Report depends partly upon the nature of the Honors Research Project. The Honors Final Reports are to be written in the form of a manuscript suitable for submission to a peer-reviewed journal. Each of the divisions in the College have identified the journals whose style should be followed:
|Medicinal Chemistry:||Journal of Medicinal Chemistry|
|Pharmaceutics:||Journal of Pharmaceutical Science|
|Pharmacology/Toxicology:||Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics|
|Clinical Pharmacy:||DICP the Annals of Pharmacotherapy:|
|Pharmacy Administration:||American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education|
The style for each of these journals is detailed in "The Instruction to Authors." Copies of these Instructions are appended to this handout. The styles for these journals consist of specific requirements for manuscripts, including the style and nature of artwork (Figures, Schemes, photographs, etc), the format for footnotes and references, characterization of new compounds, required experimental details, an so on.
In cases where the "Instruction to Authors" is not explicit concerning the formatting and/ording of particular sections of the manuscript, you should organize your Report according to the following guide. *NOTE: ALL Reports must begin with a Title Page followed by an Acknowledgement Page and an Abstract.Title Page*
