Let R be a ring and M a right R-module, S = $End_R$(M). The module M is called almost principally small injective (or APS-injective for short) if, for any a ${\in}$ J(R), there exists an S-submodule $X_a$ of M such that $l_Mr_R$(a) = Ma $Ma{\bigoplus}X_a$ as left S-modules. If $R_R$ is a APS-injective module, then we call R a right APS-injective ring. We develop, in this paper, APS-injective rings as a generalization of PS-injective rings and AP-injective rings. Many examples of APS-injective rings are listed. We also extend some results on PS-injective rings and AP-injective rings to APS-injective rings.
