Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.689 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.595 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 1.591 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology (RESPNB) publishes original articles and invited reviews concerning physiology and pathophysiology of respiration in its broadest sense.

Although a special focus is on topics in neurobiology, high quality papers in respiratory molecular and cellular biology are also welcome, as are high-quality papers in traditional areas, such as:

  • Mechanics of breathing
  • Gas exchange and acid-base balance
  • Respiration at rest and exercise
  • Respiration in unusual conditions, like high or low pressure or changes of temperature, low ambient oxygen
  • Embryonic and adult respiration
  • Comparative respiratory physiology
  • Papers on clinical aspects, original methods, as well as theoretical papers are also considered as long as they foster the understanding of respiratory physiology and pathophysiology.

Benefits to authors

RESPNB is focused on promoting the authors and the work published in the journal:

  • All articles are carefully evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief who is a leading expert in the field
  • Availability: contact the Editors-in-Chief and the Associate Editor via the Editorial Board page for any questions you may have
  • The Journal will provide upon request free PDFs to all authors who may not have access to their articles via their institution or library
  • Publication is free to authors (no color or page charges)
  • Supporting open access: if your funding body or institution requires your article to be open access, RESPNB offers that option. Please see details here.
  • Reuse figures from any RESPNB article via "get rights and content" hyperlink available within each article (below author names and affiliations) on ScienceDirect.
