Scope

Acta Physiologica Sinica (APS) is sponsored by the Chinese Association for Physiological Sciences and Shanghai Institutes of Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and is published bimonthly by the Science Press, China. APS publishes original research articles in the field of physiology as well as research contributions from other biomedical disciplines and proceedings of conferences and symposia of physiological sciences. Besides “Original Research Articles”, the journal also provides columns as “Brief Review”, “Rapid Communication”, “Experimental Technique”, and “Letter to the Editor”. Articles are published in either Chinese or English according to authors’ submission. When the journal started publication in 1927, it was named The Chinese Journal of Physiology, and was published only in English. In 1953, the name of the journal was changed into Acta Physiologica Sinica, and all articles were published in Chinese with English titles, abstracts, address of author(s), and later with English keywords, illustrations’ heading and full legend, and table heading. All the published articles have been strictly peer-reviewed. This tradition of APS has won a nation-wide recognition and made it one of the core academic magazines in China.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
