The scope of this new journal is patient-oriented research in a variety of disciplines in endocrinology, including diabetes, metabolic bone disease and osteoporosis, thyroid disease, pituitary and lipid disorders. Areas of high priority include novel pilot/proof-of-concept clinical trials in humans and basic science research involving human specimens.
Vin Tangpricha from
Atlanta, Editor-in-Chief of the journal, said, "
Journal of Clinical and Translational Endocrinology will provide authors a unique home for manuscripts focused on patient-oriented endocrinology research that translates basic science research to clinical applications for patients with endocrine diseases. As a practicing clinician and a researcher in endocrinology, I understand the importance of strengthening the relationship between the clinical and basic sciences. We look forward to providing the scientific community with high-yield content that addresses the needs of readers and investigators interested in translational research of endocrine diseases."
Andrew Miller, Executive Publisher at Elsevier, added, "
Journal of Clinical and Translational Endocrinology will offer the research community a unique and dynamic blend of tradition and innovation: editorial review from an expert team of researchers together with our publishing and dissemination systems, involving innovative, digital approaches. Elsevier is very pleased to launch
JCTE and work with Dr. Tangpricha and the journal editors to serve the needs of endocrinologists internationally."
