This week we are catching up with some journals not covered for a while: Acta Astronautica, Advances in Space Research, Biological Sciences in Space, and a new journal from COSPAR – Life Sciences in Space Research.
Papers deriving from NASA support:
Moore AD, Downs ME, Lee SM, Feiveson AH, Knudsen P, Ploutz-Snyder LL.
Peak exercise oxygen uptake during and following long-duration spaceflight.
J Appl Physiol (1985). 2014 Jun 26. pii: jap.01251.2013. [Epub ahead of print]
NOTE: A partial weight bearing suspension system was used.
Journal Impact Factor: 0.701.
Funding: “This study was funded by the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) via NASA Cooperative Agreement NCC 9-58. RDB and BRM are supported by the National Space Biomedical Research Institute Graduate Training Fellowship NSBRI-RFP-05-02.”

Inhibition of microRNA-31-5p protects human colonic epithelial cells against ionizing radiation.
NOTE: This article may be obtained online without charge.
Journal Impact Factor: 1.183.
Funding: “Most of the research investigations from the author’s laboratory discussed in this review were supported by the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI). The NSBRI is funded through NASA NCC9-8. In addition, some studies were funded by a NASA grant (NAG9-517). Several trainees participating in these investigations were supported by the NIH-funded Radiation Biology Training Grant (T32CA009677).”
