European Journal of Endocrinology

The journal publishes high-quality original clinical and translational research papers and reviews in paediatric and adult endocrinology, as well as clinical practice guidelines, position statements and debates. Case reports will only be considered if they represent exceptional insights or advances in clinical endocrinology.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to, Adrenal and Steroid, Bone and Mineral Metabolism, Hormones and Cancer, Pituitary and Hypothalamus, Thyroid and Reproduction. In the field of Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism we welcome manuscripts addressing endocrine mechanisms of disease and its complications, management of obesity/diabetes in the context of other endocrine conditions, or aspects of complex disease management. Reports may encompass natural history studies, mechanistic studies, or clinical trials.

Equal consideration is given to all manuscripts in English from any country.

 

Journal of Endocrinology

Journal of Endocrinology is an official journal of the Society for Endocrinology and is endorsed by the European Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society of Australia.

Journal of Endocrinology is a leading global journal that publishes original research articles, reviews and science guidelines. Its focus is on endocrine physiology and metabolism, including hormone secretion; hormone action; biological effects. The journal publishes basic and translational studies at the organ, tissue and whole organism level. Alongside the core endocrinology topics, the journal also encourages submissions on cardiovascular, muscle and renal endocrinology as well as submissions on the immune system where this impacts the endocrine system.


Journal of Molecular Endocrinology

The Journal of Molecular Endocrinology is an official journal of the Society for Endocrinology and is endorsed by the European Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society of Australia.

Journal of Molecular Endocrinology is a leading global journal that publishes original research articles and reviews. The journal focuses on molecular and cellular mechanisms in endocrinology, including: gene regulation, cell biology, signalling, mutations, transgenics, hormone-dependant cancers, nuclear receptors. Basic and pathophysiological studies at the molecule and cell level are considered, as well as human sample studies where this is the experimental model of choice. Technique studies including Omics, CRISPR or gene editing are also encouraged, provided they are set within a larger endocrinology context.

Alongside the core endocrinology topics, the journal also encourages comprehensive mechanistic studies on cardiovascular, muscle and renal endocrinology as well as submissions on the immune system impact on the endocrine system.


Endocrine-Related Cancer

Endocrine-Related Cancer is an official flagship journal of the Society for Endocrinology and is endorsed by the European Society of Endocrinology and the Japanese Hormones and Cancer Society. 

Endocrine-Related Cancer provides a unique international forum for the publication of high quality original articles describing novel, cutting edge basic laboratory, translational and clinical investigations of human health and disease focusing on endocrine neoplasias and hormone-dependent cancers; and for the publication of authoritative review articles in these topics.

Endocrine neoplasias include adrenal cortex, breast, multiple endocrine neoplasia, neuroendocrine tumours, ovary, prostate, paraganglioma, parathyroid, pheochromocytoma pituitary, testes, thyroid and hormone-dependent cancers. Neoplasias affecting metabolism and energy production such as bladder, bone, kidney, lung, and head and neck, are also considered.

 


Endocrine Connections 

Endocrine Connections is a society-owned open access journal offering authors the highest possible visibility for their work and stimulating cross-discipline collaboration. The journal publishes basic, translational and clinical research and reviews in all areas of endocrinology, including papers that deal with non-classical tissues as source or targets of hormones and endocrine papers that have relevance to endocrine-related and intersecting disciplines and the wider biomedical community.
