Authors' Comments
I would like to thank Bentham Science Publishers for their peerless effort to keep up scientists and students updated with the latest science and research work. Actually, Bentham assists researchers to achieve their goals to spread their reputation worldwide. I have experienced sincere, efficient and effective communication while dealing with Bentham team members. I intend to submit my work to Bentham and try to pick up journals that match my research profile. I have submitted a recent work to Medicinal Chemistry and nowadays I am drafting a manuscript targeting Current Pharmaceutical Design. Honestly, no words neither sentences would express my gratefulness and admiration. Bentham has offered my institution three months trial to access their journal lists and surf on its Board. This free access trial fulfills my literature review and broadens my horizon to absorb the recent research in pharmaceutical sciences and medicinal chemistry. Finally, I wish Bentham more success and achievement!
