Call for Papers: Sex and Gender Differences in Cardiovascular Physiology - Back to Basics
Guest Editor Dr. Virginia Miller and the Editors of AJP-Heart and Circulatory Physiology extend an invitation to submit original research articles related to sex and gender differences in cardiovascular physiology. Although sex and gender differences in cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality are recognized in clinical medicine, physiological mechanisms behind these differences have been ignored in basic research. We welcome work from genetic and molecular science to integrative animal and human physiology exploring sex differences in mitochondrial function, energetics, cellular ion regulation, secretory and mechanical processes of endothelial, smooth muscle, myocardium and autonomic and neuronal regulation. Many sex distinctions occur at specific times in the life cycle such as puberty or pregnancy, thus we encourage submissions which address interaction with development and aging. All manuscripts accepted from this Call for Papers will be included in a unique online article collection to further highlight this important topic. The article collection will also include specially commissioned Review articles.
All manuscripts should be submitted online here: http://ajpheart.msubmit.net/cgi-bin/main.plex
During the online submission process, under the "Keywords & Special Sections" tab, please use the "Category" drop-down menu and select “Sex and Gender Differences in Cardiovascular Physiology- Back to Basics."
Manuscripts will undergo normal peer review as they are received. Accepted manuscripts will be published online as they are accepted. Articles published from this Call for Papers will be highlighted with a special “Call for Papers” banner on the article PDF, as well as included in the Sex and Gender Differences in Cardiovascular Physiology- Back to Basics online article collection at time of publication.
Manuscripts can be submitted anytime but must be submitted by September 30, 2013 to be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers. If you have any questions please contact Kara Hansell Keehan, Executive Editor, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
