BOSTON — The Endocrine Society will launch its first online-only, open-access journal this fall in an effort to more quickly share the latest advances in basic science, clinical science and clinical practice, the society announced at its annual meeting here.

The peer-reviewed publication, Journal of the Endocrine Society, will serve as an outlet to rapidly publish emerging science on a variety of topics in endocrinology.

Endocrine Society Past-President J. Larry Jameson, MD, PhD, will serve a 3-year term as the journal’s first editor-in-chief.

“As the inaugural editor-in-chief, I am excited by the prospect that discoveries in endocrinology will be available as rapidly as possible following peer-review and editorial assessment,” Jameson, executive vice president of the University of Pennsylvania for the health system and dean of the Perelman School of Medicine, said in a press release. “This open-access format also will allow research articles, case reports, images and other features of interest to be available to readers worldwide, fulfilling a goal to provide ready access to high-quality information for all physicians, scientists, students and the public.

The Endocrine Society also announced that the basic science journals Endocrinology and Molecular Endocrinology will be merged into a single comprehensive journal beginning in January 2017. This move is in keeping with the industry trend of association journals broadening their scope. The combined journal will retain the Endocrinology name.

The Society also publishes Endocrine Reviews and The Journal of Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“The Endocrine Society has always been at the forefront of disseminating knowledge in our field,” Jameson said in a statement. “The launch of the new open access journal is only the latest example of how the society continues to support the needs and interests of endocrinologists worldwide.”
