5. What type of articles does JPH publish?

We publish: 

Full papers are not limited in length and number of figures. Full papers will be assigned by the Chief Editors to one Associate Editor who will review your manuscript with the help of external reviewers.

Letters to JPH are short papers (typically 2 print pages) with one or two figures that report on an original and outstanding finding. The Introduction, Results and Discussion sections should be very focused but the Materials and Methods section should be detailed enough to allow reproducibility and a thorough evaluation of the work. To speed up the review process, Letters toJPH will be review by the Editorial Board of the journal without sending it to external referees. 

JPH published also Full-ReviewsMini-ReviewsMeeting Reports, and Opinion papers. We will also consider any relevant Commentary on papers previously published here or elswhere.
