Exercise Physiology covers all aspects of exercise physiology and welcomes submissions on the response to acute exercise as well as the adaptation to exercise training programs from the molecular and cellular level to individual systems and extending to the integrated multi-systemic response of the intact organism in both humans and animals.
Exercise Physiology provides an international and interdisciplinary forum for the publication of outstanding research that covers all aspects of exercise physiology. We welcome the submission of original papers that address the response to acute exercise as well as the adaptation to exercise training programs from the molecular and cellular level to individual systems and extending to the integrated multi-systemic response of the intact organism in both humans and animals (across different ages, sexes, fitness, health or disease status). We also welcome the submission of manuscripts that deal with research methodologies, validity, reliability and data processing on topics pertinent to the study of exercise physiology. It should be understood that this section considers the field of exercise physiology to be very wide ranging and includes the study of mechanisms underlying everything from the production of the motor command, to the execution of the exercise task and any activity supporting these activities by the organism. This would also include the response to special environments, with special interest for exercise in challenging conditions (e.g. microgravity; heat; cold; hypoxia; pollution, sleep deprivation). While sports related studies can often provide novel insights into the physiological mechanisms behind the performance of exercise, for those sports related studies which are not primarily mechanistically based, authors should submit to an appropriate section of Frontiers in Sports and Active Living.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Exercise 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, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Exercise Physiology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Exercise 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 and Sports and Active Living.
