Nature Reviews Drug Discovery is a review journal with an emphasis on drug discovery and development.[1] With an impact factor of 37.231 in 2013 it is the leading journal in pharmacology/pharmacy and biotechnology/applied microbiology areas.

The reviews are commissioned to leaders in the their specialties (non-commissioned review submissions are discouraged), but are also peer-reviewed after submission. The reviews are supplemented with glossary explanations for non-specialist readers and illustrated with figures drawn by Nature's in-house art editors. Besides reviews, the journal accepts peer-reviewed analysis articles based on existing datasets (e.g. metaanalysis), progress articles that focus on outstanding issues, and perspective articles—typically opinions or historical pieces.[2]
