The 2nd most cited journal in Physiology
Frontiers in Physiology is a leading journal in its field, publishing rigorously peer-reviewed research on the physiological functions of all living systems, from the subcellular and molecular domains to the intact organism, and its interaction with the environment. Field Chief Editor George E. Billman at the Ohio State University Columbus is supported by an outstanding Editorial Board of international researchers. This multidisciplinary open-access journal is at the forefront of disseminating and communicating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to researchers, academics, clinicians and the public worldwide.
It is the mission of Frontiers in Physiology to provide a single platform to publish the most outstanding research across all the subspecialties embraced by physiology and to create a worldwide community of like-minded individuals, in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas and to promote interactions between investigators across specialties.
Frontiers in Physiology is member of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

Frontiers in Physiology is composed of the following Specialty Sections:
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Physiology welcome submission of the following article types: Book Review, Brief Research Report, Case Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review, Technology Report, Addendum, Clinical Study Protocol, Erratum, Policy and Practice Reviews, Clinical Trial, Code, Policy Brief, Field Grand Challenge, Focused Review and Frontiers Commentary.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Physiology, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the respective specialty section.
Articles published in the specialty sections above will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in the Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Physiology.
