About GaBI Journal


GaBI Journal (official Journal of the Generics and Biosimilars Initiative) is an independent and peer reviewed academic Journal, which encompasses all aspects of generic and biosimilar medicines development and use, from fundamental research up to clinical application and policies.

Mission Statement

The mission of GaBI Journal is to provide an independent, high quality, authoritative, and peer reviewed platform for the publication of scientific articles concerning any aspect of the research into and development of cost-effective medicines, irrespective of their source.

This Open Access journal will thus make information on pharmaceutical innovation and developments in generic and biosimilar medicines accessible to everyone, including physicians, pharmacists and nurses, patients/consumers, drug developers, third-party payers, legislators and assessors.

This is achieved by:

  • independent peer review
  • collaboration with all relevant stakeholders (physicians/prescribers, regulatory authorities, industry, third-party payers and governments)
  • publishing via open access channels, both in print and electronically.
