Reasons to publish


Rapid peer review and publication

European Journal of Endocrinology offers rapid peer review with a mean receipt to first response time of just 18 days. Due to the high volume of submissions received, the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board operate a rapid triage system and only the top 40% of papers undergo full external peer review. This workflow is in place to allow authors to submit to a more appropriate journal with minimal delay.

Accepted manuscripts are published online and fully citable within 24 hours of acceptance. Furthermore, articles are published continuously online as soon as the version of record is available, just weeks from acceptance.
