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.

Attention European Members and Subscribers!
    Our printing and mailing facility was faced with some difficult decisions concerning distribution of our journals. Shipping to Europe has been hit the hardest. Holding all journals until the pandemic is ‘over’ is not possible because there is no timeline for this event. There is simply not enough storage capacity to hold all periodicals. Trying to work with airlines for air shipments when flights are being cancelled and new surcharges are being assessed almost hourly is not an option either. It could mean paying 30% or more above the current air mail rates with no guarantee of when flights may resume. The compromise they have reached is this: Send Europe via Ocean Freight weekly and use Air Freight for Rest of World. 
   We feel it is the most viable option to keep all copies of our journal moving while eliminating any surcharge. We believe that all members and subscribers will understand and expect some delays in delivery. By utilizing Ocean Freight for Europe, we are very confident there will be no disruptions in transportation (just delays in delivery). Sail time is approximately 12 calendar days to the UK and then the journal will be handed off to carriers that go into each country in Europe. 
   We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. And remember, your journal is always available online at:
