welcome to APSselect

APSselect is a collection of the very best original research papers published by the American Physiological Society. Each month, the most outstanding recently published papers from our ten research journals are selected and made available through this multi-journal website. Selections from previous months may be viewed on the archive page.

What is APSselect?

The overarching goal of APSselect is to shine a bright light on the outstanding scientific discoveries published by our Society each month. APSselect endeavors to be a timely, convenient, and concise “one-stop shopping” mechanism to broadly transmit our most exceptional work. APSselect aims to serve as a virtual “front porch” of the American Physiological Society’s scholarly home. In doing so, APSselect serves and enlivens all 11,000+ APS members. APSselect is also an ideal mechanism to enable a broader mission: to promote excellence of the physiological discipline to biomedical researchers in other fields. . . . read more
