Author Fees The author survey conducted by the Publications Department in raised several important issues that resulted in recommendations from the Publications and Finance Committees to implement the following revenue neutral revisions to author fees, which were applied to manuscripts submitted as of January 1, Submission fees were eliminated. This change brings APS within community norms.
InAPS received 91 requests for the option vs. As ofto enable authors to comply with the policies of many funding agencies, APS has instituted the application of the CC-BY Creative Commons attribution license http: The CCC is the primary provider to academic publishers of copyright permissions services; APS has been working with this organization for many years for administration of print copyright permissions.
Almost all editors are in alignment, and some realize savings. Publications continue to clarify and simplify expense guidelines with editors.

The ability to make office funds "fungible" for other specific purposes was implemented as a 2-year trial as of The guidelines were reviewed and revised by the Publications Committee at its March meeting and again at its meeting, wherein it was agreed: Editors may use their expense budget to benefit the journal as they see fit.
The new site will be launched at the beginning of January APS conducted a website survey at the end ofsent to the full editorial boards of all journals, to collect feedback regarding priorities and preferences for the presentation and navigation of the journals' content websites.
This feedback is being consulted to improve the user experience for the next iteration of the site. As ofadministration of the program has been consolidated at the Washington University School of Medicine. Details about manuscript review CME are at http: InCME credit for manuscript reviewing was awarded to reviewers for reviewing papers as follows: Beginning July 1, the CME program will add two additional journals, AJP-Cell and AJP-GI, and will move from a paper-based system to a more efficient online platform that will make it easier for editors to complete and manage their conflict-of-interest statements and for reviewers to receive their CME certificates.
In response, NIH is making changes to graduate student education, grant preparation, and publishing guidelines in an effort to promote better experimental design, analysis, and reporting https: As a result of these meetings, FASEB prepared a set of recommendations to the scientific community, published in January www.
In particular, they encouraged society publications committees and journal boards to increase rigor and transparency in the journals, in part by providing more detailed guidelines for reporting methods and reagents in research articles.
Inrecommendations from the editors-in-chief to the APS Publications Committee resulted in the development of enhanced guidelines for reporting experiments in APS journals.
In Augustthe guidelines were posted online in "Information for Authors" to encourage better reporting of animal experiments, antibody validation, and experimental details in figures and legends. Guidelines for articles based on original computer simulation software were posted online in January Two webpages were created to highlight the guidelines see below and others were updated: Statistics Review APS collaborated with the American Statistical Association to identify a small group of statisticians that were interested in serving as statistics reviewers for APS journals.
As of Decemberseven statisticians have agreed to participate in this effort. After 6 months of participation as a statistics reviewer, formal invitations to join the editorial board s may be extended at the discretion of the Editors in Chief. Module on Best Practice in Peer Reviewing The author survey conducted by the Publications Department in raised several important issues, which the Publications Committee agreed to address. One of these issues was the creation of educational materials to support best practice for APS reviewers.
To achieve this, a working group of editor-in-chief volunteers [Irv Zucker ChairSadis Matalon, Rick Samson, and Peter Wagner] was established, which developed these materials. The materials represent the basic principles for peer reviewing. The goal established is for each editor-in-chief to host webinars for their associate editors and editorial boards on a regular basis.
The working group developed and the Publications Committee reviewed and edited the module. The PPT module is complete and has been distributed to the editors-in-chief for use with their editorial boards. Average usage for selected vs.
Values are given as a relative percentage of the maximum amount of usage that an average non-selected or selected article received during this 5-month period. Recent Publications APSselect http: A certificate is awarded to the authors of each selected article.
The monthly selection process is: The editors-in-chief of each of the 10 journals nominate two recent articles. A Selection Board, representative of disciplines within physiology, chooses the final articles, using a point rating system, similar to that of NIH grant peer review. Usage data show that articles chosen for APSselect experience a spike in usage on publication vs. Comprehensive Physiology Comprehensive Physiology www.
The first issue, published in Januaryincluded all content of the most recent edition of the printed Handbook digitized and presented as "Classic Content," plus 25 new articles. Comprehensive Physiology is published quarterly. As of June 1,articles have been invited, of which have been accepted, 30 are in review or revision, and have been published. The invited articles are from 11 of the 13 sections, covering 25 topics; "topics" correspond to a volume of the Handbook.

- Presentations from the Meeting
- Senimars and Workshops
To maximize use and appeal for teaching, Comprehensive Physiology has added teaching materials for newly commissioned and updated articles. As of fallteaching material is provided by the authors in two parts and displayed on a separate tab in the article: As part of the program, 33 backlist monograph titles have been digitized and are now freely available to APS members.
Twelve books have been published in the program to date for a total of 80, full text downloads. All new titles are published in electronic format as part of Springer's "Physiology eBook Collection" and are available in print.
All ebooks published in the program, both new and backlist titles, are freely available to APS members via login at the APS website at www. The books are hosted on the Springer website and can be downloaded as a PDF or viewed in the reader's browser. The journal is tasked to achieve a quick time to publication while upholding a quality standard of sound research that constitutes a useful contribution to the field. The journal also accepts de novo submissions, whose peer review process is comparable to that of APS journals.
The journal accepts original research articles, reviews, and commissioned editorial focus articles. In Julythe journal began accepting a new article type, Case Reports, which are clinical cases that must have a physiological focus see http: Physiological Reports is managed by a joint managing board composed of representatives from both societies.
Physical Review Journals
Susan Wray University of Liverpool is editorin- chief and Thomas Kleyman University of Pittsburgh is deputy editor-in-chief, and, in Junethe JMB reappointed both to a second and final 2-year term.
There are waivers in place for submissions from authors based in countries that cannot afford the fees as there are for all APS journals. Physiological Reports launched in March The first article appeared online in Mayand the first issue was compiled in JuneArticles are published as they are ready, and issues are compiled monthly.
Currently, the majority of published papers have come from transferred manuscripts. In recognition of this success, and to further broaden international appeal of the journal, in Junethe societies signed an agreement with The Scandinavian Physiological Society to include their journal, Acta Physiologica, as a supporter journal to Physiological Reports, from which suitable manuscripts are referred.
A MoU was signed, and seed funding was contributed by each. The consortium now "SSPA" worked with a marketing firm to deploy qualitative market research strategies to determine motivations and provide the foundation for the development of key attributes, positioning, audience segments, and recommendations for future marketing efforts that will push the message into the community phase I.
Key research findings include: Confirmation how different factors influence author behavior in publication choices and how these change along the career path.
Perceptions of society vs. Value of the scientist as editor — preferred, but few have given it much thought. Phase 1 conceptual phase established a position statement: These publications advance research by providing peer validation and author support and by reinvesting in the community as part of their not-for-profit commitment. We continue to work with marketing and now design consultants to establish a website for the SSPA as the face of a campaign to promote the positioning statement.
The website will launch August 1, APS journal press releases received 32, views from the media on our press release distribution website Newswise from January 1 to May 31, The top five most popular journal releases addressed: The terrorists were in contact with their handlers during the attack, but soon after the SSG had moved in, the security forces intercepted the terrorists' communications.
