Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety (PDS)

Official Journal of the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology

PDS has established itself as the only truly focused international forum for papers on the expanding science and practice of pharmacoepidemiology, addressing issues on the safety, efficacy, proper use of and quality of prescription medicines. It also covers questions of data assembly and processing, the maintenance of large databases and their use of computerised dictionaries, the vexed questions of data privacy and confidentiality, and the increasing demand for studies of relative efficacy, effectiveness and cost effectiveness, and quality-of-life studies.

PDS is the official journal of ISPE; PDS is a MEDLINE and ISI listed journal. ISPE members receive online access to PDS as a member benefit.

PDS now contains some new and special features, in addition to the full-length primary research papers.
