Welcome to the UBC PSSJ Website!

UBC Pharmaceutical Sciences Student Journal (UBC PSSJ) is the first peer-reviewed, open-access, and student-run pharmacy journal in Canada. We are committed to promoting and disseminating student, faculty and practitioners’ work in all areas of pharmacy scholarship, including lab-based, clinical, pharmacy practice, and pedagogical research.

UBC PSSJ was created in order to take advantage of the many exciting research projects within the faculty and to provide a pharmacy-focused forum for students, practitioners, and researchers to publish. The journal will also provide support programs such as workshops to empower students with the skills they need to transform their research into publications.

Volume 3 Issue 1 CoverOur Current IssueWith Volume 3 Issue 1 of the PSSJ, we expand our horizons and focus on pharmacy around the globe. With the theme of “International Pharmacist,” we examine pharmacy practice in different countries and compare them to our own domestic practice. We also examine the implications and benefits of pharmacist’s truly global reach, and how it impacts our practice at home. We would like to thank our members, faculty and staff who have been a tremendous support for this issue!
