Pharmacotherapy Pearls

The Pharmacotherapy Web Site

Written by Stephen E. Cavanaugh, B.A.

Pharmacotherapy Pearls

In setting up the Pharmacotherapy Web site (, our main goal has been to add value for ACCP members and other subscribers. Thus, we wanted to draw your attention to features that may have slipped your notice so that you can take advantage of them.

Although primarily serving as a gateway to the online e-journal hosted by Atypon-Link and to our manuscript submission and reviewing site at Manuscript Central, our Web site is also the home of Alternative Viewpoints, answers to frequently asked questions, and links to our advertising agency and journal staff. We also include features to make regular readers’ visits more enjoyable.

One of the most useful and most frequently downloaded files on the home page is the Combined Subject Index. This PDF includes the subject index for every volume of Pharmacotherapy starting with volume 14 (1994). It has been updated to include 2008, and it includes the volume number in the header to help you quickly find the issue with the subject in which you are interested. Because it is a fully searchable PDF, you can locate very quickly every article we have published during the past 15 years on a specific subject.

Another popular feature of the home page that we began last summer is our blog on news from the world of health care and pharmacy. Each day, we present links to newspaper and magazine articles about new disease treatments, research, industry, and health care reform. The blog currently links to 34 news sources, including The New York Times, The Guardian (Nigeria), the BBC, MSNBC, The Boston Globe, The Times of India, the Herald Sun (Australia), and The Economist. A listing of key words at the bottom of the blog window lets you find all articles tagged with that key word.

Finally, we keep quick links to some of the more important papers we publish in Pharmacotherapy. The ACCP meeting abstracts, White Papers, and Position Statements are all available on the home page. In addition, we list papers we have published by the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists. There is also a listing of Key References articles, which have proved to be among our most downloaded articles through the years. These annotated bibliographies of important research and reference articles are useful to both researchers and clinicians.

We hope you find these features on the Pharmacotherapy Web site of interest, and we welcome your feedback.
