Description

Human Physiology  is an international peer reviewed journal aimed at promoting the integration of theory, methods, and research in human physiology. The journal publishes original studies on brain function and its disturbances, including neural mechanisms subserving perception, learning, memory, emotion, and language. Human Physiology  provides a forum for many areas of physiology, such as respiration, circulation, the blood system, motor functions, and digestion, as well as sport and occupational physiology. All kinds of papers on environmental physiology, including adaptation to extreme (polar zone, desert) and new (space) external conditions, are encouraged. Each year, the journal has thematic issues. The journal is highly interested in the cooperation of scientists from all countries and accepts manuscripts submitted in English or Russian.

PEER REVIEW

Human Physiology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 50 reviewers, both internal and external (50%), from 6 countries (Russia, France, Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, USA). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 40 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2017 was 40%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
