Skeletal Muscle is a peer-reviewed, open access, online journal that publishes articles investigating molecular mechanisms underlying the biology of skeletal muscle. A wide range of skeletal muscle biology is included: development, metabolism, the regulation of mass and function, aging, degeneration, dystrophy and regeneration. The emphasis is on understanding adult skeletal muscle, its maintenance, and its interactions with non-muscle cell types and regulatory modulators.

“The goal [of the journal] is to understand how the skeletal muscle relevant cellular systems work, so that one might be able to improve human health and combat disease.”
“Skeletal Muscle is an exciting new journal that will provide a home for our field and facilitate better dissemination of research into the fundamental mechanisms regulating muscle development, regeneration and function.”
