JBCPP has been accredited by the Israel Physiological and Pharmacological Society.

The Journal of Basic and Clinical Physiology and Pharmacology (JBCPP) is a peer-reviewed bi-monthly published journal in experimental medicine. JBCPP publishes novel research in the physiological and pharmacological sciences, including brain research; cardiovascular-pulmonary interactions; exercise; thermal control; haematology; immune response; inflammation; metabolism; oxidative stress; and phytotherapy. As the borders between physiology, pharmacology and biochemistry become increasingly blurred, we also welcome papers using cutting-edge techniques in cellular and/or molecular biology to link descriptive or behavioral studies with cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the integrative processes.
