With a focus on human integrative and translational physiology, the European Journal of Applied Physiology publishes original research that is considered likely to further our understanding of the functioning of the intact healthy human body under a variety of environmental (e.g. altitude, climatic, gravitational) and exercise conditions. Contexts include those relating to occupational, sporting, recreational and daily activities throughout the human life-span from childhood to old age.

  • Presents research on the function of the intact healthy human body under a variety of environmental and exercise conditions
  • Examines occupational, sporting, recreational and daily activities throughout the human life-span from childhood to old age
  • Analysis draws on molecular and developmental biology, biomechanics, biochemistry, endocrinology, and nutrition, as well as all aspects of human physiology
  • No publication charges except for special services (Open Access, paper offprints, e-offprints, posters etc.)
  • Color art is free of charge for print and online publication
  • 98% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

  • Call for state-of-the-art reviews

    With the ongoing cancellation of scientific meetings, the European Journal of Applied Physiology is announcing a call for for state-of-the-art reviews. These mini-reviews are concise summaries of innovative research seen as driving new research directions. The goal of a state-of-the-art review is to introduce readers to recent advances and research trends in an area that may be outside of their own research area. The writing must be clear and free from jargon so that physiologists outside of that particular research area can benefit.  
     
    The manuscript should be between 2000 and 4000 words, plus figures, tables and references. Manuscripts may have up to three figures and/or tables. The number of references is as required to support the paper.

    Interested authors should complete and submit the review proposal in full (a template is available here) to the EJAP Reviews Editor.
