welcome to APSselect

The American Physiological Society is pleased to present a new initiative: a Society-wide virtual journal, APSselect. The purpose of APSselect is to rapidly highlight and promote the very best of our original research papers. Each month a collection of the most outstanding recently published papers from our ten research journals will be collected and made available through this multi-journal website.

APSselect inaugural editorial

January 2014 marks the beginning of an exciting new initiative for our Society. To highlight, promote, and rapidly disseminate our very best original research papers, a new Society-wide “virtual journal” will be launched. This new virtual journal, entitled APSselect, will highlight the “best of the best” of the some 250 papers published each month by the Society’s 10 research journals. APSselect will be prominent and easily accessible from the APS homepage and promoted widely. . . . read more
