Majalah Obat Tradisional

Majalah Obat Tradisional (Maj. Obat. Trad.) promotes advances in the discovery and development of herbal and traditional medicine. Articles focus on the cultivation and extraction of raw materials, or the analysis of these materials’ phytochemical or pharmacological effects and toxicity, as well as their potential applications of natural extracts, fractions, or compounds in the formulation of traditional medicine.

Majalah Obat Tradisional employs a double-blind peer review, and as of 2018, only accepts articles written in English. We believe in removing barriers to the dissemination of important research. Therefore, in addition to articles being immediately open access, authors are not required to pay any submission or publication fees.

The journal is published three times a year by the Faculty of Pharmacy, Universitas Gadjah Mada, in collaboration with the Indonesian Pharmacist Association, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and is nationally accredited (SINTA2) by the Directorate General of Research and Development of the Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education, Republic of Indonesia.
