Aim and Scope of the Journal
Pakistan Journal of Physiology/Pak J Physiol/PJP is published Quarterly (4 issues in a calendar year). It receives original scholary work for publication on medical and allied subjects (all basic medical sciences and related clinical subjects) including medical education as well as from biological and biomedical sciences. The manuscripts submitted for publication may be in the form of an original research (randomized controlled trial, metanalysis, quasi experimental study, case control study, cohort study or cross-sectional analytical study), review article, case report, book review, recent advances, new techniques, debates, adverse drug reports, current practices, audit report, evidence-based report, short communication, or a letter to the editor. While the PJP promotes publication of scientif work, studies more than five years old at the time of submission as well as simple descriptive and KAP (knowledge, attitude, practice) studies are not entertained. Pakistan Journal of Physiology does not accept multiple studies/multiple end publications gathered/derived from a single research project, or data (wholly or in part) known as ‘salami slices’. The Journal discourages submission of more than one article dealing with related aspects of the same study.
