The world's 3rd most-cited Physiology journal
Clinical and Translational Physiology is devoted to encompassing all areas of physiology that provide insights that can be translated to clinical applications. This includes basic research through clinical studies, as well as animal studies that provide novel translational insights to advance human health. If we can integrate advances in physiological research into clinical medicine this could have a major impact on clinical practice, i.e. more accurate and earlier diagnosis, novel treatment targets, and personalized novel therapies. Our aim is to provide multi-disciplinary coverage of research in various fields of clinical physiology.
Articles without direct clinical relevance should be submitted to our corresponding sections within Frontiers in Physiology. Authors are required to include in their cover letter, abstract, and main text a statement that adequately describes the direct clinical relevance. Manuscript submissions that do not contain this information may not be considered for review within the section, or subject to transfer.

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