The journal “Arzneimitteltherapie” (drug therapy) is a medical practice/review journal providing timely information about drug therapy for practicing physicians and specialists.
Historically, the journal (first published 1983) was intended to inform board members in hospitals about drug therapy. Today Arzneimitteltherapie is appreciated by a wide readership (about 12,000) for its independent information about novel developments and original papers. The articles primarily cover the field of internal medicine, but special issues also deal with other disciplines.
In addition to reviews, “Arzneimitteltherapie” includes comprehensive information about every newly approved medication, change of indication and safety issues. The journal provides editorials and commentaries on international conferences and guidelines.
The journal is funded by subscriptions and advertisement. Ads are always placed on a separate page and never on one containing editorial content.
The publishing group exists for more than 150 years (1861) and is still led by members of the initial family.
