It is published by and the official journal of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, and before that the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. The journal was established in 1841 and has been published weekly since 1870. It is considered to be "among the oldest professional journals in the world".[1] It first appeared in July 1841 as a monthly journal called Transactions of the Pharmaceutical Meetings, founded by Jacob Bell who also founded the Pharmaceutical Society (now the Royal Pharmaceutical Society). The title of the journal changed to Pharmaceutical Journal and Transactions in 1842 and "within a year it had all the features of an orthodox professional journal: Leading articles, meeting reports, critical commentaries, letters, and book reviews.[1] In 1859, Bell bequeathed the journal to the Pharmaceutical Society on his deathbed. It became a weekly journal in 1870, and the title The Pharmaceutical Journal was adopted in 1895.[1]
