About the PDA Letter

PDA Letter is PDA's membership magazine covering the science, technology, and regulation behind the manufacturing of sterile injectable pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products. It also is the primary source of communication about PDA events, chapters, membership, training, and other important Association business.

PDA Letter is an electronic, English-only magazine. Legacy print editions can be found in in the “pdf archive” but as of 2021, PDA has ceased printing the magazine.

Quarterly Regional Editions are published, also.

Currently, two-to-three articles are uploaded to the website weekly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and/or Thursdays. Two feature-length articles are published monthly.

Readers can sort PDA Letter articles by the following PDA-critical Article Categories:

  • People
  • Aseptic Processing & Sterilization
  • Biopharmaceuticals & Biotechnology
  • Manufacturing Science
  • Quality & Regulatory
  • Supply Chain

Interested Authors should by active PDA Members and carefully review the Submit page before submitting to PDA Letter.

An all-volunteer Editorial Committee assists PDA in choosing articles for publication. Every year, PDA needs new volunteers to help fill seats on the committee, so if you are interested send an email to this email: [email protected].
