Physiological Reports

Physiological Reports is an online only, open access journal that will publish peer reviewed research across all areas of basic, translational and clinical physiology and allied disciplines. Physiological Reports is a collaboration between The Physiological Society and the American Physiological Society, and is therefore in a unique position to serve the international physiology community through quick time to publication while upholding a quality standard of sound research that constitutes a useful contribution to the field.

Papers will be accepted solely on the basis of scientific rigor, adherence to technical and ethical standards, and evidence that the data are sufficiently well-conceived and support the conclusions.

The Physiological Reports expert Editorial Board will review all submissions in a timely, fair and constructive manner and select papers for publication based on the following criteria:

  • The study presents the results of primary research in physiology
  • The results have not been published elsewhere
  • The experimental work has been properly conducted and described in appropriate detail
  • The conclusions are adequately supported by the data
  • All ethical standards have been met
  • The article is written in standard (American or British) English and structured in a coherent  fashion

Physiological Reports aims to give authors a decision quickly. Where revisions are required, Physiological Reports will focus on essential enhancements to improve clarity and remove ambiguity, avoiding requests for significant re-work. All feedback to authors will be given in a constructive, collegial manner.
