New author guidelines for Physiological Measurement
ONE of IPEM’s four international peer-reviewed journals has introduced new author guidelines for articles that report on subjects capable of differentiation by sex and/or gender.
Physiological Measurement (PMEA) has introduced a new policy compliant with the Sex and Gender Equity in Research (SAGER) guidelines.
This means that authors have to utilise the SAGER guidelines in the preparation of their manuscripts to enable them to effectively report on sex and gender information.
The SAGER guidelines are designed primarily to guide authors in preparing their manuscripts, but they are also useful for editors to integrate assessment of sex and gender into all manuscripts as an integral part of the editorial process.
More information for authors has been made available via the PMEA guidelines. These include some recently published articles, as examples of where sex and gender information is adequately reported on within the research for authors to view.
