Online reach:

All members and fellows of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society have full access to the platform. In addition, more than 14,000 pharmacy students who do not receive the print editions of The Pharmaceutical Journal, have full access to the online platform.

Apart from RPS members, a metered access model has been implemented on our online platform, so those users who are not members of the RPS, can still have access to a number of articles published every month for free, and even more articles if they register with us. Nonmembers also have the option of purchasing a digital or premium subscription to our publications, if they choose not to become members of the RPS. As a result, our online platform has a far wider reach than our print editions.
