BMC Physiology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on cellular, tissue-level, organismal, functional, and developmental aspects of physiological processes.
BMC Physiology is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.
BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.

Section Editor's profile
Monika Fleshner, PhD is a professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology, a member of the Center for Neuroscience, and the director of the Stress Physiology laboratory at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She is the current president of the International Society for Exercise Immunology (ISEI), past-president of the Psychoneuroimmunology Research Society (PNIRS), and a faculty associate for the Vice Chancellor for Research. Dr. Fleshner's research program is focused on understanding 1) the impact of acute and chronic stressor exposure (mental or physical) on behavior, neural, hormonal and immunological function; 2) how these systems interact to affect the whole organism; and 3) the mechanisms of increased stress resilience produced by exercise."BMC Physiology is a terrific platform to submit interdisciplinary and integrative work in Physiology. Our recently published review in BMC Physiology has been well received by the field [Speaker, KJ; Fleshner, M. Interleukin-1beta: A potential link between stress and the development of visceral obesity. BMC Physiology 12: 8 (2012) 1-15]"
