Circadian rhythmicity is inherent to all living forms, which are built for different activities in the light of day and at night when it is dark. Life on earth is characterized temporally within the circadian domain and circadian rhythmicity is implicated in all aspects of physiology, behaviour and health.
The Chronobiology section will provide an international and an interdisciplinary forum for the publication of outstanding research covering all aspects of chronobiology and chronomedicine, including molecular clock circuitry, animal models, physiology, pathophysiology, behaviour and health.
This section considers the field of chronobiology to be extremely wide-ranging. It will particularly welcome the submission of original papers addressing open chronobiology questions by complex systems approaches. Original papers on translational chronobiology, its medical applications, its social implications, modelling and measurement issues related to rhythmicity are also encouraged. Finally, original papers on biological phenomena characterised by endogenous rhythmicity other than circadian, i.e. seasonal, lunar or tidal, will also be welcome.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Chronobiology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Chronobiology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Chronobiology 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 all 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.
