Guidelines for authors

Submission of a manuscript implies that it represents original material that has not been previously published and that it is not being considered or has been submitted for publication elsewhere (previous publication of any of the content, e.g. as an abstract, poster, etc. must be mentioned). Any overlap with previously published papers or with papers currently under consideration elsewhere must be declared by the authors in the cover letter upon submission.


The corresponding author must declare that the manuscript is submitted on behalf of all authors and that they have all participated in the work to be published in physioscience. Submission of the manuscript implies that the authors accept the physioscience “Guidelines for authors.” The authors accept in advance any necessary editing of the manuscript (including figures). Authors must give their written approval for final publication. 


It is expected that, on submission, the authors hold the copyright to the submitted text and all illustrations (photographs, graphics, etc.). Unfortunately, we cannot accept images that have already been published in books, journals, or electronic products of other publishers. That is because it is almost impossible to obtain the necessary rights of use even when licensing fees are paid. Therefore, please do not pay any licensing fees (e.g. to “RightsLink”/Copyright Clearance Center). Standard license contracts from “Creative Commons” are unfortunately also insufficient for our purposes. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the use of images. Copyright is transferred to the publisher upon acceptance of the manuscript.
