ESE’s Flagship Journal – the European Journal of Endocrinology – moves to a new publisher

ESE is pleased to announce that our flagship Journal, the European Journal of Endocrinology (EJE), will be published by Oxford University Press (OUP) from January 2023.

This move will see OUP work with ESE to continue to drive the growth in Impact Factor achieved over the last 10 years, and support the progression of the Journal in the rapidly changing publishing environment including the drive toward open access, while maintaining the high quality and reputation of this long-standing publication.

OUP has been publishing journals for over a century and currently publishes over 500 academic and research journals covering a broad range of subject areas, two-thirds of which are published in collaboration with learned societies and other international organisations.

ESE’s President, Martin Reincke commented, “ESE is grateful for the professional publishing support received from Bioscientifica in the last two decades. We continue to develop and advance and are excited to bring our flagship journal, EJE, together with OUP to take it to the next stage of its journey.”

EJE’s Editor in Chief, Wiebke Arlt added, “EJE continues to be a top choice for authors to submit papers to, with its increasing Impact Factor and citations. This, coupled with OUP’s wide reach and relationships with institutions across the globe, will increase its visibility and growth even further.”

ESE Members can still read the latest research free of charge through the Members' area, benefit from reduced rates on print subscriptions and receive discounts on open-access publication fees. The experience for authors and readers submitting, accessing and citing papers in EJE should not change. There will be a new standalone website, and ESE Members can access it directly from the ESE website or when logged into the Members’ area.

ESE Members will also benefit from a new 50% discount on APC fees and a new simplified structure for page and colour charges from January 2023.

Speaking on the new agreement, Deborah Dixon, Publishing Director, OUP, said, “OUP is delighted to be working collaboratively with the European Society of Endocrinology and looks forward to the future strategic development and growth of the European Journal of Endocrinology.”

ESE’s journals bridge the gap between basic and clinical science, offering opportunities for sharing the breadth of endocrine research. EJE, as a premier peer-reviewed journal in the field of endocrinology, 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.

EJE achieved a 2021 Journal Impact Factor of 6.558 and has seen a significant increase in its Five-Year Impact Factor from 6.341 to 6.805.

EJE is now ranked 27 out of 146 journals in the ‘Endocrinology and Metabolism’ category of the latest Journal Citation Reports, cementing its place as the leading broad-scoped, clinical and translational endocrinology journal.
