The Journal of Applied Physiology invites the readership to provide their views on the ‘in press’ Point: Counterpoint debates and Viewpoint articles by submitting a brief (250 word maximum, 5 references* from peer reviewed publications only) commentary. The Point: Counterpoint and Viewpoint articles can be located on the JAPPL’s Articles in Press website.
After clicking on the pdf link to open the article, you will see a link to “submit a response” located in the right hand margin. Simply click that link and the form to submit your commentary will appear. Commentaries are subject to review by the Editor-in-Chief.
If other responses have been published, you can also click "view responses" to see what your colleagues have written.
The commentary must include reference to the Viewpoint or Point: Counterpoint article under discussion. Also, for your commentary to be considered for publication, you MUST adhere to the word and reference limit (250 words, 5 references*) and it must be received by the due date printed at the end of the article.
* One of the 5 references should be to the Viewpoint or Point:Counterpoint article itself.
Submit a Point-Counterpoint debate or a Viewpoint article
The Journal of Applied Physiology has recently initiated two new series of articles: Point-Counterpoint debates and Viewpoints. See the Featured Articles for the most recently published topics.
Point-Counterpoint: We invite you to submit suggestions for future Point-Counterpoint debates. Please send the statement you wish to have debated and potential authors for each side of the debate. We advise you to communicate with potential participants in order to carefully define the problem to be debated and to devise wording of the statement. We also encourage you to consider yourself (and colleagues and/or students) as authors. Please see instructions for authors. We look forward to receiving your ideas for this exciting new series of publications.
Viewpoint: Viewpoint articles are a type of Perspective that are intended to present an insightful, thoroughly documented slant on a topic for which opinions are either controversial or undecided in the literature. The hope is that the readership will benefit from a new unconventional viewpoint on a topic. Please see instructions for authors.
If you have suggestions for future topics or questions about the call for comments, please contact the Editorial Assistant, Keith Lander at email@example.com or (858) 534-4192.
