Aims and Scope
The Journal of Controlled Release (JCR) publishes high-quality research articles in the broad field of delivery science and technology. This includes drug delivery systems and all aspects of formulations, such as physicochemical and biological properties of drugs, design and characterization of dosage forms, release mechanisms, in vivo testing, and formulation research and development in the disciplines of pharmaceutical, diagnostic, agricultural, environmental, cosmetic, and food industries. Manuscripts that advance fundamental understanding of principles and/or demonstrate advantages of novel technologies in safety and efficacy over current clinical standards will be given priority. Each issue has the cover story highlighting the significance of a selected article published in the issue. At the end of each quarter, the JCR editors select "The Editors' Choice" from the published research articles.

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
The most bizarre submission process, this process sounds like playing, from submission to review half a month later, and then the review process took 2 and a half months. During this period, there were reminders, but no results. Finally, after 3 months, the review comments came back, and it was discovered that both reviewers requested rejection, citing language problems and did not provide any evaluation of the article's content. What's even more interesting is that the review comments from the two individuals are surprisingly identical, not in terms of content, but in terms of wording, not a single letter differs. I strongly suspect that the associate editor is fabricating peer review. I will never submit to JCR again, it's too disgusting, leaving one speechless. If they were not interested, they could have simply rejected it, without resorting to such despicable means. We are all people in the academic circle, why are they so shameless? Is it satisfying or fulfilling for them to waste other people's time? I don't understand. As an author myself, I have served as a reviewer for many journals, and I always complete reviews within the specified time. Why do these so-called associate editors not have this awareness?

6.5 Deputy Editor rejects the submission, two positive comments and one negative comment, there are more issues in the positive comments, mainly in terms of parameters. The rejection only mentions that it is more suitable for a more specialized journal and does not provide any specific feedback, suspecting that the article was not read. Can only battle it out with the Editor, as the other two reviewers requested revisions for publication. Hoping for a major revision. Sigh.
