About the Journal

JOURNAL OF DRUG VIGILANCE AND ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES (JDVAT) is a quarterly international scientific publication addressing the disciplines of pharmacovigilance, toxicology, risk assessment, complementary and alternative medicines. The aim of JDVAT is to detect and assess adverse reactions arising through the use of drug molecules and to mitigate them with traditional, conventional, alternative, complementary, and combination therapies of different systems of medicines including practices of acupuncture, anthroposophy, biofeedback, eclecticism, kinesiology, moxibustion, organotherapy, rejuvenation etc.

A drug molecule has the possibility for side effects, and it is essential to ensure that a drug is being used safely and that its prescription is reviewed if specified. Through publishing original research articles, review articles, case reports, and short communications, JDVAT promotes the effective use of pharmacotherapy by providing advice on safe and appropriate medication prescribing, global communication of adverse drug reactions, and various approaches to reduce side effects.

Moreover after post-marketization, each medicinal product and drug has its own risk-benefit ratio. Products whose benefits to patients outweigh their risks will be accepted, but this does not rule out the possibility of negative side effects. To track the drug safety benefits, continuous surveillance of pharmaceutical drugs is needed during the drug product lifecycle.

The JDVAT is also associated with the study and scientific investigation of the biological processes of materials derived from plants, animals, and minerals used in various health-care programs such as Allopathy, Ayurveda, Siddha, Yoga, Homoeopathy, Unani, Naturopathy, Nutraceuticals, Phytomedicines and so on, in order to provide an alternative treatments and avoid therapies having increased risks of adverse effects.

JDVAT provides free, unrestricted access to abstracts and full-text articles. The journal emphasizes on fast publishing, with features such as online research article monitoring, email/SMS alerts, and more. Manuscripts are authorized for approval on the agreement that the work has not been published yet, that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere, and that its application for publication has been authorized by all authors and the institution where the work was done.
