  • a dedicated mentoring programme for future editors of EJE
  • regular contribution to EJE peer review and opportunities for contributing a review and a commentary
  • an invitation to participate in the annual EJE Editorial Board Meeting in 2024 and 2025
  • a travel bursary of up to €500 each to attend the European Congress of Endocrinology in 2024 and 2025.

The 13 awardees for 2024-26 are:

  • Barbara Altieri, Germany

Felix Beuschlein, incoming Editor-in-Chief of EJE, says: “Congratulations to our new cohort of Rising Stars! This is a fantastic opportunity for the next generation of leading researchers to gain insights into journal publishing and help shape the growth and impact of EJE over the coming two years. Endocrinology is a fascinating and evolving field and I look forward to collaborating with this cohort as the Journal continues to deliver high-quality original clinical and translational research to the endocrine community.”

Wiebke Arlt, who will step down as Editor-in-Chief of EJE in May 2024, says: “It has been a great pleasure working with the 2022-24 cohort over the last two years, and I want to thank them for their hard work and commitment. The EJE lead and associate editors enjoyed all our interactions and working together has helped to further build the Journal’s profile and making it an attractive prospect for the publication of high-quality endocrinology research. The first cohort’s success underscores the value of the EJE Rising Stars Programme in paving the way for exceptional researchers to become EJE editors.”

The 2024-26 Rising Stars will start their tenure officially at the European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) in Stockholm, Sweden, in May 2024, where they will also meet the 2022-2024 EJE Rising Stars cohort at a networking lunch.
