SLAS Discovery reports how scientists develop and use novel technologies and/or approaches to provide and characterize chemical and biological tools to understand and treat human disease. The journal focuses on drug discovery sciences with a strong record of scientific rigor and impact, reporting on research that:
- Enables and improves target validation
- Evaluates current drug discovery technologies
- Provides novel research tools
- Incorporates research approaches that enhance depth of knowledge and drug discovery success.
SLAS Discovery’s Editorial Scope includes: scientific and technical advances in target identification/validation (including chemical probes, RNA silencing, gene editing technologies); biomarker discovery; assay development; virtual, medium- or high-throughput screening (biochemical and biological, biophysical, phenotypic, toxicological, ADME); lead generation/ optimization; chemical biology; informatics (data analysis, image analysis, statistics, bio- and chemo-informatics); review articles on target biology, new paradigms in drug discovery and advances in drug discovery technologies
Publishes: annually in January, March, April, June, July, September, October and December
