AMHP Journal

The peer-reviewed monthly journal, Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance (AMHP), formerly Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, provides contact with physicians, life scientists, bioengineers, and medical specialists working in both basic medical research and in its clinical applications. It is the most used and cited journal in its field. It is distributed to more than 80 nations.

Open Access Publishing
In response to the need for some authors to publish  their work as Open Access, Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance is now a ‘hybrid’ journal. We offer Open Access publishing (see Submit an Article for more) and also publish articles for no fee, other than the applicable fees. Authors are free to post their accepted manuscript in an institutional repository without paying any fees. Traditionally published articles are free online after a 1-yr embargo. They remain free for 5 years. Then they return to pay-per-view, but are always available and searchable online through Ingenta.
