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.

Articles chosen for APSselect are from the most recent issues of the 10 APS research journals. Every month, the Editors of these journals nominate two of their most exciting papers. Each month’s selections are chosen by the APSselect editorial team from this very narrow field of excellent articles nominated monthly by the respective Editors of these 10 research journals.

Since its launch in January 2014, 295 articles have been featured in APSselect, resulting in greater focus on and interest in the new research.

The APSselect editorial team is led by Joseph Metzger, Editor-in-Chief, and Linda Samuelson, Associate Editor. The following individuals are on the Selection Board.
