Qatar University College of Pharmacy (QU-CPH) Professor of Clinical Pharmacy and Practice Dr Derek Stewart and Manager of Academic Quality Assurance at the Vice President of Medical and Health Sciences Office, has been appointed Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy.
The International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy (IJCP) is published by Springer Nature and provides a platform for research articles in the broad field of clinical pharmacy and related subjects.

It is a bi-monthly, international peer-reviewed journal which publishes around 150 articles per year on a wide range of subjects.
Commenting on his achievements, Dr. Derek said: “I have been committed to the journal for many years as an author, a regular reviewer of the articles submitted and a member of the editorial board. It is an honor and a highlight of my career to take on the role of Editor-in-Chief and try to follow in the footsteps of Foppe van Mil, who has been Editor-in-Chief for 20 years. I am supported by four associate editors, Filipa Alves da Costa, Vibhu Paudyal, Shusen Sun and Yolande Hanssens. I am particularly indebted to Yolande Hanssens of Hamad Medical Corporation, who was willing to assume the role of Interim Editor-in-Chief until my appointment. I am keen to raise the scientific standing of the journal in academic and clinician circles.”
QU-CPH Dean Dr. Mohammad Diab said, “Dr. Derek’s new appointment is an outstanding achievement that provides an excellent opportunity to enhance our international reputation in research.”
The journal is affiliated with the European Society of Clinical Pharmacy (ESCP). ESCP is an international leader in the advancement of quality and innovation in clinical pharmacy education, practice and research. Dr. Derek was also appointed president of the company for two years in December 2020.
