Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Exercise Physiology provides an international and interdisciplinary forum for the publication of outstanding research covering all aspects of this field. The amount of physical exertion performed by active people and athletes must be based on the reliable knowledge of coaches, sports scientists, and professionals in the fields of exercise physiology and sports performance. We welcome the submission of original papers that address the physiological mechanisms underlying the acute response to exercise, as well as adaptation to exercise, from the molecular and cellular level to individual systems, and extending to the integrated multisystem response of the intact organism in both humans and animals (across different ages, sexes, fitness, health, or disease). We also welcome the submission of manuscripts dealing with research methodologies, validity, reliability, and data processing on topics pertinent to the study of exercise physiology. The field of exercise physiology is very broad and includes the study of the mechanisms underlying the production of the motor command to the execution of the exercise task and any activity supporting these activities by the organism. It also includes the response to special environments, with special interest in exercise under difficult conditions (e.g., microgravity, heat, cold, hypoxia, pollution, or sleep deprivation). While simple descriptive and sport-related studies can provide new insights into the physiological mechanisms underlying exercise performance, those descriptive and sport-related studies that are not primarily based on the study of physiological mechanisms, should best be submitted to an appropriate section of the Journal of Men’s Health (JOMH) in the Special Issue "Exercise Physiology and Sport Performance".

JOMH is a fully open-access journal that covers all aspects of men’s health, it also addresses sexual  disparities in health, life expectancy, lifestyle and behaviors and so on. Please note this Special Issue will focus on male participants or gender differences compared with female participants.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted via our online editorial system at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to start your submission. Manuscripts can be submitted now or up until the deadline. All papers will go through peer-review process. Accepted papers will be published in the journal (as soon as accepted) and meanwhile listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, reviews as well as short communications are preferred. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office to announce on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts will be thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. Please visit the Instruction for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) in this open access journal is 1500 USD. Submitted manuscripts should be well formatted in good English.
