Exercise Biochemistry Review (EBR) is the official journal of the International Research Group on Biochemistry of Exercise. It is a fully open access journal managed by reseachers for researchers and students. Once a year, EBR publishes a series of review papers reporting the recent advances in biochemistry of exercise including those related to integrative, cellular and molecular biology of exercise. Every three years, EBR publishes the proceedings of the International Biochemistry of Exercise Conference (IBEC).

From the outset, the International Conferences in Biochemistry of Exercise have led to high-level publications either in the form of books or integrated into scientific journals
