Gastrointestinal Motor, Secretory, and Sensory Functions

Gastrointestinal motor, secretory, and sensory functions are pivotal to digestion and sensation in health and disease. Studies exploring these mechanisms constitute important steps to identify therapeutic approaches to intraluminal factors, as well as the intrinsic and extrinsic control of these pivotal functions. Such studies may include diverse methods directed at molecular targets that provide proof of the role in physiology or the potential in therapeutics and will be of great interest to readers of the American Journal of Physiology-Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology.

All manuscripts should be submitted online via eJournalPress. During the online submission process, under the “Keywords & Special Sections” tab, please use the “Category” drop-down menu and select “Call for Papers: Gastrointestinal Motor, Secretory, and Sensory Functions”.

Manuscripts will undergo normal peer review as they are received. Accepted manuscripts will be published online as they are accepted. Articles published from this Call for Papers will be highlighted at the time of publication. The collection may also include specially commissioned research articles related to the topic.

Manuscripts can be submitted anytime, but to be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers, manuscripts must be submitted by October 1, 2018.
