The Journal of Physiology publishes research that significantly advances our knowledge of physiology and increases our understanding of how the body functions in health, and disease. Published since 1878, this prestigious journal has published papers from over 40 Nobel laureates.

The Journal welcomes research papers in all areas of physiology that present new physiological principles or mechanisms. Papers are invited on work at the molecular level, the level of the cell membrane, single cells, tissues or organs and on systems physiology.

The leading International Editorial Board seeks articles such as Perspectives, Symposium Reports and Topical Reviews, which highlight areas of special physiological interest, and Classical Perspectives describing how classic papers published in The Journal have influenced current research.

The Journal’s Editor-in-Chief is David J Paterson and its 2012 Impact Factor is 4.380.
