New Platform Frequently Asked Questions

What is Physiology.org?

Physiology.org will be the home of the nearly 120 years of content from 13 of our peer-reviewed journals. The homepage will contain links to all journals, subject collections, information for authors/reviewers/librarians, current calls for papers and announcements, trending research lists, and much more.

I am a subscriber. Will I still be able to access content on the new platform?

APS's goal is to make the migration as seamless as possible with no interruption to access to APS journal content. Current subscriber information has been transferred to Atypon from HighWire.

I usually access the content via my academic institution. Will that change?

If your institution is a current subscriber, you will still get access to the content. If you feel you are not able to access the content you could prior to the new site launch, please contact your library.

How do I register or login?

Click the person icon at the top right of any physiology.org page to login or register. If you are a subscriber, you will receive an email from our Circulation Department with login information. You will not need to register for a new account.

To register for a new account, click the person icon at the top right of any physiology.org page, and follow the "Click here to register" link.

I am an APS member. Do I have to sign in to get access through my institution?

You do not have to sign in to access the content you could access before via your library. You would sign in to obtain access to your profile area (change your address or email, access Favorites, modify your TOC or citation alerts, or access your saved searches. The benefit of the new site is that you do not have to register for a new account. You can use your member credentials to access your profile area as soon as the site launches.

What are the benefits of having an account?

If you register for an account, you can take advantage of the personalized features our site will offer. These features include Content TOC Alerts (which will arrive in your Inbox at the frequency you choose), and Citation Alerts for your own articles or other favorites, which you can access from your Profile page. From your profile you can also access those articles you’ve saved as Favorites or searches that you perform on a regular basis (you can add these to your favorites from the search results pages).

I already receive TOC alerts. Will I still receive them?

If you are a current subscriber and were signed up for TOC alerts, you will continue to receive them. You can also modify your alerts in your profile area when logged in.

If you currently receive alerts but are not a subscriber, you will receive an email from Atypon encouraging you to register for an account so that you can sign up for those alerts you're used to receiving.

I used to receive citation alerts for my own article. Will I still receive them?

You will receive an email from Atypon encouraging you to register for an account so that you can sign up for citation alerts. You can sign up for these alerts to going to the Tools menu on the article page.

I used to receive author and keyword alerts. Will I still receive them?

You will receive an email from Atypon encouraging you to register for an account so that you can sign up for search alerts. You can sign up for these alerts by conducting a search for that particular author or keyword and saving the search on the search results page.

I was used to using the mobile app. Can I still use it?

Our new site will adjust to any screen size, including tablets and mobile devices. There is no need for a separate app to access our site and content.

What is the difference between the PDF and the PDF Plus?

The PDF is what you're used to downloading, simply the print version of the article. The PDF Plus is a more interactive version; you can click on images to enlarge them or link out to any paper in the references you want to access. The PDF Plus is also a smaller file size, so it’s a faster download. There is no extra cost for the PDF Plus version.

Are the colorful donuts with numbers on article pages?

These are Altmetric attention scores. They indicate how many times and where an article has been discussed in various news and social media outlets. When you click to see more details, you are brought to the Altmetric database so that you can see links to where that article is cited in the news, blogs, Twitter, and other specific sites.
