The 2nd most cited journal in Physiology
Invertebrate Physiology focuses on the physiology of invertebrate organisms ranging from invertebrate molecular biology to environmental physiology and evolution. Papers both on model systems such as Drosophila and C. elegans and non-model organisms are encouraged.

Invertebrate Physiology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Invertebrate Physiology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Invertebrate 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.
