Aims & Scope

Reviews in Analgesia (formerly Analgesia) is an international journal that publishes in English original reviews by experts on topics related to the basic mechanisms and therapeutics of pain relief. Reviews are invited that focus on pain mechanisms, endogenous mediators of pain, mechanisms of analgesia, and the synthesis, testing, or mechanism of action study of known or experimental analgesic compounds-including nonanalgesic and side effect endpoints and abuse liability. In addition, reviews of clinical studies or practice are invited that help elucidate the mechanism of action of known analgesic drugs, or that report on the use of experimental compounds or combinations. Reviews on new or standard methodological approaches, statistical analyses, and theoretical or mathematical treatments are also invited.
