A List* of Journals that Publish Comparative Physiology Articles

*by no means exhaustive

 

Physiology Journals

American Physiological Society Publications (http://www.the-aps.org/publications/journals/index.htm)

The American Physiological Society publishes a number of different journals specializing on different areas of physiology.  I particularly want to call your attention to two titles that are particularly pertinent to this course

You can access articles one year old or more free of charge through their website.  You can also access the American Journal of Physiology titles through the IUK electronic journal finder with the same limitations on usage

Annual Review of Physiology (http://arjournals.annualreviews.org/loi/physiol)

This is a great starting place for research paper topics, since it publishes review papers on a lot of topics in physiology.   IUK library has hard copies 1960-1996.  You can also get electronic access to 1997-2004 through the IUK journal finder

Archives of Insect Biochemistry and Physiology http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/issn?DESCRIPTOR=PRINTISSN&VALUE=0739-4462

    We have electronic access to 1996-present through the IUK electronic journal finder.

Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry A (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/10956433)
Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry B (
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/10964959)
Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry C (
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/15320456)

CPB-A covers molecular and integrative physiology, CPB-B covers biochemistry and molecular biology, and CPB-C covers pharmacology, toxicology, and endocrinology.  Although there is apparently no online full text access available through IUK, abstracts can be viewed through the publisher's website, and I have personal access to issues from 1995 to present in the event you want something from these journals

Fish Physiology and Biochemistry (http://www.kluweronline.com/issn/0920-1742)

Abstracts are available through the publisher's website.  Full text is not available through IUK, but I have personal access from 1997-2004 if you need something.

General and Comparative Endocrinology (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00166480)

This particular journal focuses on endocrinology.  Abstracts are available through the publisher's website.  Full text is not available through IUK, but I have personal access from 1993-present if you need something.

Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/09651748) OhioLink 1995-present

Journal of Comparative Physiology A  (http://www.springerlink.com/openurl.asp?genre=journal&issn=0340-7594)
Journal of Comparative Physiology B
(
http://www.springerlink.com/openurl.asp?genre=journal&issn=0174-1578)

JCP-A covers sensory, neural, and behavioral physiology, whereas JCP-B contains papers on biochemical, systemic, and environmental physiology.  Although there is apparently no online full text access available through IUK, abstracts can be viewed through the publisher's website, and I have personal access to issues from 1995-present in the event you want something from either journal

Journal of Evolutionary Biochemistry and Physiology (http://www.springerlink.com/openurl.asp?genre=journal&issn=0022-0930

Abstracts are available through the publisher's website.  Full text is not available through IUK, but I have personal access from 2000-2004 if you need something.

Journal of Experimental Biology ( http://jeb.biologists.org/)

Despite the somewhat misleading title, this is the largest journal in comparative physiology, and one of the best.  Free online access is available for issues one year old or more through the journal's home page.  IUK also has an electronic subscription to this journal that can be accessed through IUCAT for current year issues.

Journal of Experimental Zoology (http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/jhome/31612). 

From 1990 to 2001 IUK had a paper subscription to this journal, but when it got up to $4000 a year for the institutional subscription it was time to let it go.  Fortunately, IUK still had electronic access through Wiley Interscience.  JEZ was recently subdivided into two journals: JEZ-A (Comparative Experimental Biology) and JEZ-B (Molecular and Developmental Evolution).  The former section publishes numerous comparative physiology papers.  We have electronic access to 1996-present through the IUK electronic journal finder.

Journal of Insect Physiology (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00221910

Abstracts are available through the publisher's website.  Full text is not available through IUK, but I have personal access from 1995-present if you need something.

Journal of Thermal Biology (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/03064565)

Abstracts are available through the publisher's website.  Full text is not available through IUK, but I have personal access from 1995-present if you need something.

Physiological and Biochemical Zoology (formerly Physiological Zoology)

Papers from 1999-2006 can be accessed through the IUK electronic journal finder.  The library has hard copies from 1995-2003. I have a personal subscription going back to 1994 (electronic 1997-present).

Physiological Entomology  (http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/loi/pen)

Papers from 1998 to 2006 can be accessed through the IUK electronic journal finder

Respiration Physiology and Neurobiology (formerly Respiration Physiology) (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/15699048)

Abstracts are available through the publisher's website.  Full text is not available through IUK, but I have personal access from 1995-present if you need something.

 

Ecology, Zoology, and General Science Journals Containing Comparative Physiology Papers

Canadian Journal of Zoology (http://pubs.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/cgi-bin/rp/rp2_desc_e?cjz)

This is another zoology journal that contains a fair number of comparative physiology papers.  IUK has hard copies of 2002 to present and an on-campus only electronic subscription for 1998-current.  Only abstracts can be viewed directly through the web site off campus, but copies of papers from 2001 to 6 months ago can be accessed through the IUK electronic journal finder

Ecology (http://www.esajournals.org/esaonline/?request=index-html)

Yes, ecology journals can sometimes contain comparative physiology papers--after all, physiology is all about an organism's response to its surroundings.  And this one is the grand-daddy of them all.  IUK has hardcopies from 1971-present (although much is on microfilm, which totally blows).  In addition, electronic copies of articles from 1920-2000 can be accessed either through the IUK electronic journal finder.

Functional Ecology (http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/journal.asp?ref=0269-8463&site=1)

Functional Ecology has a decent number of ecological physiology papers.  There are a few freebees that can be downloaded from Blackwell's web site, articles from 1987-2001 can be accessed through the IUK electronic journal finder.   I have personal access to electronic copies of newer articles if you need them.

Integrative and Comparative Biology (formerly American Zoologist(http://www.sicb.org/az/index.php3)

This journal publishes papers based primarily on symposia presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (formerly known as the American Society of Zoologists).  One of the largest divisions in the society is the Division of Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry, and usually there are numerous comparative physiology papers published in each volume of the journal.  The papers are often reviews of a particular topic with some new data presented.  You can access the last two years of American Zoologist (2000-2001) and all volumes of Integrative and Comparative Biology (2003-present) through the IUK electronic journal finder.  In addition, I have complete volumes of American Zoologist dating back to 1995, and numerous sporadic issues prior to that.

Nature (http://www.nature.com/index.html)

The British science journal Nature is really a blend of a journal and magazine--it is used to showcase the flashiest and most innovative research of the time, although what is published in there is not necessarily the best work done (I've seen a LOT of retractions made in that journal over the years).  Occasionally comparative physiology papers have found their way into the journal.  IUK library has old issues of this journal (1950-1985).  More recent issues (1995-) can be accessed online through the IUK journal finder and through IUCAT.

Science (http://www.sciencemag.org/)

Science is the American equivalent of Nature.  Again, it showcases innovative research.  Occasionally comparative physiology papers appear in the journal.  IUK library has current paper issues of the journal (1977-present).  More recent issues (1995-) can be accessed online through the IUK journal finder and through IUCAT.  But best of all, if you can access the journal through IUPUI's electronic journals page (log on with your IU network ID and password), you can get access to the journal from 1880-1999.
