Call for Papers:
Cardiac, Skeletal, and Smooth Muscle Excitation–Contraction Coupling
You are invited to submit papers for a Special Issue on the topic of Cardiac, Skeletal, and Smooth Muscle Excitation–Contraction (EC) Coupling to the Journal of General Physiology (JGP) by January 31, 2022.
EC coupling comprises the processes that link incoming exciting signals, which can be electrical or chemical, to contraction of cardiac, skeletal or smooth muscles. The Special Issue will collect work on a broad range of relevant mechanisms, in all types and sources of muscle. Approaches to basic physiology, the pathological and clinical consequences of altered function, and mechanism-based therapeutics are all welcome.
The review process is overseen by JGP Associate Editor Eduardo Rios, and Editor-in-Chief David Eisner. They are joined by Guest Editors Karin Sipido of the University of Leuven, Belgium, and Robert Dirksen of the University of Rochester, New York.
Submissions of Research Articles, Communications, Hypotheses, or Methods and Approaches are specifically invited, in any format. JGP will waive the publication fee of $2,000 for these dedicated issue articles if submitted by the deadline of January 31, 2022.
During the submission process, please indicate that the material is intended for publication in the Cardiac, Skeletal, and Smooth Muscle Excitation–Contraction Coupling Special Issue.
