Publishing with Physiological Reports


Transfer your Manuscript or Submit via ScholarOne

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 study is sufficiently well-conceived and the data support the conclusions.

All articles published by Physiological Reports are fully open access: immediately freely available to read, download and share. To cover the cost of publishing, Physiological Reports charges a publication fee.

Reasons to publish with Physiological Reports:

Manuscript Transfer Program
Physiological Reports is supported by other journals published by The Physiological Society and the American Physiological Society. After review in a supporting journal, rejected articles of suitable quality can be identified by the Editor as candidates for publication in Physiological Reports. Authors will have the option to transfer their manuscript to Physiological Reports and complete the submission process. The Physiological Reports editors will then undertake further evaluation. Importantly, authors will not need to make any changes to their manuscript at this stage. Authors should note that decision letters and referees’ comments are transferred to the editor of Physiological Reports along with the manuscript. The Physiological Reports editors will take the previous reviews into account when making their decision, although in some cases the editors may choose to take advice from additional referees. For a list of The Physiological Society and the American Physiological Society journals that support and participate in the Manuscript Transfer program for Physiological Reports click here.
