Overview

Advances in Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, with its polished, concise and readable reviews, Research News, Meeting reports and discussions of topics at the cutting edge of endocrinology, covers both clinical and research aspects of the field, from state-of-the-art treatments of endocrine diseases to new developments in molecular biology, thus serving as an invaluable source of information for researchers, clinicians, lecturers, teachers and students. The journal is guided by a distinguished, international editorial board and emphasizes a global approach to continuing medical education for physicians and other providers of health care with a specific interest in problems relating to all aspects of endocrinology.

Aim and Scope

The journal’s aim is to publish peer-reviewed original articles, reviews and case reports on research and clinical practice in all aspects of endocrinology, including bone and mineral; growth factors; reproductive/steroids; neuroendocrinology/signal transduction; thyroid; and physiology.Each issue provides up-to-date coverage of new developments that enhance our understanding of pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of endocrine and metabolic disorders. Regular features of special interest include original reports of important advances in patient-oriented endocrine and metabolic research, personal perspectives on endocrinologic topics.

Molecular, subcellular, and cellular studies in whole animals or humans will be considered in Advances inClinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Specific themes include, but are not limited to, mechanisms of hormone and growth factor action; regulation of metabolism and energy balance; integrative organ cross talk; paracrine and autocrine control of endocrine cell performance; function and activation of hormone receptors; endocrine or metabolic control of channels, transporters and membrane function; temporal analysis of hormone secretion and metabolism; and mathematical/kinetic modeling of metabolism. Novel molecular, immunological, or biophysical studies of hormone action are also welcome.
