In 1993, Acta Endocrinologica enters a new era as the Official Journal of the Federation of European Societies of Endocrinology (EFES), and will change its title to the European Journal of Endocrinology as of January 1994.
This event represents an important milestone for this venerable journal of Northern European origins which, over the years, has acquired an international reputation within the scientific community. The new title reflects an awareness of the future and, also, the primary objective of the journal's founders: to promote increased communication and understanding between scientists in Europe and elsewhere in the field of endocrinology.
The journal was founded in 1948 by a group of Scandinavian endocrinologists who realized that the need for a greater cohesion of regional and national scientists should be encouraged by the creation of a scientific journal.
