Acta Physiologica’s impact factor now 4.9.

Dear members,

It is with greatest pleasure to announce that Acta Physiologica is inching up on an impact factor of 5. We are currently at 4.9.

At present, Acta Physiologica is the leading journal publishing mainly original articles in the entire field of physiology. Six of the altogether 84 journals covering physiology are ahead of us. These focus on reviews, or are focused on specific areas (e.g. Physiological reviews or Pineal Research).

We are overwhelmed of your efforts, submissions and continuous support, which have made such a great difference!

With my very warmest regards,


Pontus Persson

Chief Editor of Acta Physiologica
