Recognized as a definitive reference on the science and practice of pharmacy, Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy has been associated with University of the Sciences since its first publication by Professor Joseph Remington in 1886.

Now, in a new and fully revised 22nd edition, Remington has an even more international outlook and an array of new content that makes it an indispensable companion for pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. The latest edition also makes effective use of online content for drug information.

For over a century, Remington has featured in the training and careers of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists across the globe, introducing them to the fundamentals of practice, examining the discipline in its social context, mapping developments in pharmaceutical science, and relating it to the practicalities of patient care as well as drug discovery and development.
