The journal will provide for the rapid publication of 2-4 page reports on all aspects of natural products. The Editors will give priority to concise papers that merit urgent publication by virtue of their originality, general interest, or contribution to new developments. Reports must be complete and concise or may show the importance of a new field of research. Preliminary reports, which are incomplete or lack depth are outside of the scope of the journal. Papers that describe the development of methodology or studies that are broad in terms of their multidisciplinarity are particularly encouraged.
Manuscripts which detail routine extract pharmacology or trivial evaluation of known compounds (for example antioxidant effects of flavonoids) will not be reviewed and are outside of the scope of the journal.
