Since 2013, in partnership with Taylor and Francis, IACFS/ME has published a quarterly, peer-reviewed medical journal.
Fatigue: Biomedicine, Health and Behavior is an international, interdisciplinary journal that addresses the symptom of fatigue in medical illnesses, behavioral disorders, and specific environmental conditions. These broadly conceived domains, all housed in one journal, are intended to advance research on causation, pathophysiology, assessment, and treatment. The content that we seek includes original research papers, literature reviews, meta-analyses, data-based theoretical papers, short reports, qualitative studies, innovative case studies, conference reports, expert interactive commentary, and letters to the editor.
The list of topics covered in Fatigue will include fatigue in diseases including cancer, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis, pain conditions, mood disorders, and circulatory diseases. The journal will also publish papers on chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and related illnesses. In addition, submissions on specific issues involving fatigue in sleep, aging, exercise and sport, and occupations are welcomed. More generally, the journal will publish on the biology, physiology and psychosocial aspects of fatigue. The Editor also welcomes new topics such as clinical fatigue education in medical schools and public health policy with respect to fatigue.
We publish a number of different article types in addition to regular articles, including Short Reports, Reviews, Case Studies, Commentaries, and more. For more information on the types of manuscripts considered for publication click here.
Physicians, research scientists, psychologists, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and other health researchers and clinicians who value knowledge of fatigue as an important factor in illness, aging, sleep, occupations, and exercise and athletics will find the journal informative and useful.
Peer Review Integrity
All research articles in this journal, including those in special issues, special sections or supplements, undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two independent referees.
