Submitted by yanglinpei on Fri, 04/08/2022 - 11:49

The American Physiological Society (APS), founded in 1887, is a non-profit organization dedicating to improving education, research and promotion in the field of physiology. The society publishes 14 professional journals and society newsletters, as well as physiology series and manuals, 13 of which are indexed by SCI. The database of American Physiological Society (APS) contains its journals and books on physiology, which cover most aspects of the physiological system, from cells and molecules to organs and systems.

14 journals that ordered from the database:

1.American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology

It dedicates to exploring innovative approaches to molecular and cellular physiology, focusing on the mechanisms of physiological control between high-level tissues by cellular and molecular methods.

2. American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism

It publishes original research on the physiology of endocrine and metabolic systems, focusing on research of human or animal at the molecular, subcellular and cellular levels.

3.American Journal of Physiology- Liver Physiology

It mainly publishes research articles on the normal and abnormal functions of gastrointestinal tract, hepatobiliary system and pancreas, mainly covering their growth, development, digestion, secretion, absorption, metabolism, immunity and locomotion, as well as the neural, endocrine and circulatory control mechanisms that affects these organs.

4.American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology

It mainly publishes research papers on the physiology of the heart, blood vessels and lymphatics, covering experimental and theoretical studies of various cardiovascular function from intact organisms to cells, subcells and molecules.

5.American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology

It mainly publishes research articles on normal and abnormal functions of cells and components in respiratory system from molecular, cellular to entirety.

6.American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology

It mainly publishes theoretical and experimental studies on the regulation and integration of normal and abnormal physiological mechanisms of biological tissues at all levels from molecular to human.

7.American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology

It mainly publishes research papers on kidney, urethra, related cells and vessels as well as body fluid volume and composition in human or complete organism, single cell and independent membrane system.

8. Journal of Applied Physiology

It publishes original papers in the field of applied physiology, especially paying attention to the study of adaptive mechanisms and comprehensive mechanisms.

9. Journal of Neurophysiology

It publishes research papers on the function of the nervous system including molecular neurobiology, cell culture, micrographic preparation, membrane physiology, developmental neurobiology, functional neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, neuropharmacology, electrophysiology, behavioral analysis, imaging techniques, etc.

10. Physiological Genomics

It publishes research on physiology, from human and model systems to genes and pathways.

11. Physiological Reviews

It publishes reviews of research in the field of physiology and biochemistry by world-renowned physiologists, neuroscientists, cell biologists, biophysicists, clinicians, etc.

12. Physiology

It mainly publishes peer-reviewed reviews of current research by leading figures in the field of biology.

13. Advances in Physiology Education

It mainly publishes peer-reviewed articles on laboratory teaching, physiological implications, evaluation of educational and research tools, and teaching methods.

14. Physiological Reports

It is an online and open access monthly publication of peer-reviewed research in the fields of basic and translational physiology and related disciplines.
