Journal of Neuroendocrinology
The Journal of Neuroendocrinology, first published in 1989, is the official journal of the British Society for Neuroendocrinology, the European Neuroendocrine Association, the Pan American Neuroendocrine Society and the International Neuroendocrine Federation. It is an academic journal publishing original research in the field of neuroendocrinology, along with review articles. The journal provides the principal international focus for the newest ideas in classical neuroendocrinology (vertebrate and invertebrate) and its expanding interface with the regulation of behavioural, cognitive, developmental, degenerative and metabolic processes.
The Journal of Neuroendocrinology is owned and managed by the British Society for Neuroendocrinology (BSN), and published on our behalf by Wiley-Blackwell. The editor-in-chief is appointed by the BSN Committee. The present Editor-in-chief is Professor Julian Mercer of the University of Aberdeen. All the journal's content, including free virtual issues, accepted articles published online in advance of issues, and the archive of content reaching as far back as the first article on melatonin receptors, can be found on the journal's website.
We currently produce 12 issues per year (online ISSN 1365-2826), with approximately 10 papers each.
Aims and Scope
Journal of Neuroendocrinology provides the principal international focus for the newest ideas in classical neuroendocrinology and its expanding interface with the regulation of behavioural, cognitive, developmental, degenerative and metabolic processes. Through the rapid publication of original manuscripts and provocative review articles, it provides essential reading for basic scientists and clinicians researching in this rapidly expanding field.
In determining content, the primary considerations are excellence, relevance and novelty. While Journal of Neuroendocrinology reflects the broad scientific and clinical interests of the BSN membership, the editorial team, led by Professor Julian Mercer, ensures that the journal’s ethos, authorship, content and purpose are those expected of a leading international publication.
