Newswise — The editorial team carefully selects the top articles published each month across all ten APS research journals that highlight, promote, and rapidly disseminate the best original research. This collection provides:
• Outstanding scientific discoveries published by APS each month.
• Timely, convenient, and concise "one-stop shopping" mechanism to broadly transmit the most exceptional work.
• Easy access from the APS homepage

“APSselect is an ideal mechanism to enable a broader mission: to promote excellence of the physiological discipline to biomedical researchers” said the Editor-in-Chief Joseph Metzger in the January 2014 issue of The Physiologist.

APSselect aims to serve as a virtual front porch of the American Physiological Society’s scholarly home. The overarching goal of APSselect is to shine a bright light on the outstanding scientific discoveries published by the Society. APSselect will serve the APS membership and the physiology discipline with distinction and pride. APSselect can be accessed at

Physiology is the study of how molecules, cells, tissues, and organs function in health and disease. Established in 1887, the American Physiological Society (APS) was the first US society in the biomedical sciences field. The APS represents more than 11,000 members worldwide and publishes 14 peer-reviewed journals with a global readership.
