Physiological societies partner with Wiley on new open access journal

December 13, 2012

Hoboken, N.J.--December, 13, 2012--John Wiley & Sons, Inc., The Physiological Society (TPS), and The American Physiological Society (APS) announced today their partnership to publish the new open access peer-reviewed journal, Physiological Reports, which will launch early next year.

Physiological Reports will offer peer-reviewed research across all areas of basic, translational and clinical physiology and allied disciplines for physiologists, neuroscientists, biophysicists and clinicians. The journal will serve as the first fully open access online-only journal for The American Physiological Society and The Physiological Society, and joins their combined prestigious portfolio of peer-reviewed print and online subscription-based scientific journals, such as the American Journal of Physiology, The Journal of Physiology, and Experimental Physiology.

Susan Wray, Ph.D., University of Liverpool, UK, is a Professor and former Head of the Department of Physiology at the University of Liverpool, and is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Her research focuses on the physiology of smooth muscle and how it contracts. She has served in various roles on the Editorial Boards of The Journal of Physiology and Experimental Physiology. Thomas Kleyman, M.D., University of Pittsburgh, USA, is Professor and Chief, Renal-Electrolyte Division at the University of Pittsburgh. His research has been devoted to renal physiology. Dr. Kleyman has served as Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology for the last five years.

Philip Wright, Chief Executive of The Physiological Society said, "This represents a landmark for The Physiological Society launching its first new journal in over 100 years and we are delighted to be doing this in partnership with The American Physiological Society. Most importantly this is an OA journal that will be run by two of the world's leading physiological societies for its members and for physiologists around the world."

Martin Frank, Executive Director of The American Physiological Society, said, "The time was right for both The American Physiological Society and The Physiological Society to create an open access journal to meet the evolving needs of our joint constituencies. It is very gratifying to know that both Societies are able to join together to create this journal, which will serve the needs of the international community of physiologists."

Jackie Jones, Publisher for Physiological Reports, Wiley, added, "We are very enthusiastic about this new venture with The Physiological Society and The American Physiological Society. We are looking forward to extending our existing relationships with both societies by developing Physiological Reports into a successful, high quality journal."

This week we talk about appearance, bodies, and body image. Why does what we look like affect our headspace so much? And how do we even begin to research a topic as personal and subjective as body image? To try and find out, we speak with some of the researchers at the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR) at the University of the West of England in Bristol. Psychology Professor Phillippa Diedrichs walks us through body image research, what we know so far, and how we know what we know. Professor of Appearance and Health Psychology Diana Harcourt talks about visible...
