JPH is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes two main categories of papers:

- Articles are limited in length to 6000 words (main text) and 6 figures or tables and 70 references maximum. 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 (or table) 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 reproducbility and a thorough evaluation of the work. To speed up the review process, Letters to JPH will be review by the Editorial Board of the journal without sending it to external referees.

JPH published also Full-Reviews, Mini-Reviews, Meeting Reports, and Opinion papers. We will also consider any relevant Commentary on papers previously published here or elsewhere.

On the basis of the evaluations provided by the Associate Editors, the Chief Editors of JPH will decide to either accept, ask for a minor or a major revision or reject your manuscript.

Manuscript can be submitted for evaluation as a non-formatted PDF file but we recommend you to use the template files available below. Please number each line in this file.

In the Comment to the Editor box copy your Cover letter where you can list prefered and non-prefered referees.

Publication criteria of JPH:

1.The study presents the results of primary scientific research.

2. Results reported have not been published elsewhere.

3. The objectives of the study and the hypothesis grounding the research are clearly formulated in the Introduction.

4. Experiments, statistics, and other analyses are performed to a high technical standard and are described in sufficient detail.

5. Conclusions are presented in an appropriate fashion and are supported by the data.

6. The article is presented in an intelligible fashion and is written in standard English.

We are happy to publish all papers that are judged to be technically sound. Reviews are thus applied for readability, clarity, technical correctness, and appropriate scope and interpretation. We consider that judgements about the importance of a paper are made after publication by the readership who are the most qualified to determine what is of interest to them. 

Added February 1st, 2017:

We believe at JPH that it is important to make our editorial process as transparent as possible. Therefore, for now on:
we encourage referees to sign their reports, thereby disclosing their name to the authors at the end of the editorial process or from the beginning of the review process if the referee wishes so. 
we will publish all referees reports, author's responses to these reviews and the substantive part of the decision letters alongside published articles. Anonymity will be preserved according to referees' preferences. 

Registered readers are also kindly invited to comment on the paper and the reviews.
