Special Collections


Endocrine Connections publishes basic, translational and clinical research and reviews in all areas of endocrinology, including papers that deal with non-classical tissues as source or targets of hormones and endocrine papers that have relevance to endocrine-related and intersecting disciplines and the wider biomedical community. In response to the broad scope of the journal, the editorial team have decided to create a series of special collections, bringing together the latest published content on a specific type of article or topic from the journal.

Endocrine Connections is a fully open-access journal, and therefore all the articles included in the special collections are free to read by all.
