| About the Society|
The Endocrine and Metabolism Society of Nigeria (EMSON) was founded in Lagos, Nigeria in 1978 by a group of Endocrinologists. EMSON is a professional body that comprises Endocrinologists and Physicians of all medical specialties, Surgeons, Laboratory Scientists, Anatomists, Biochemists, Physiologists, Medical microbiologists, Nurses and Medical students who are interested in Endocrinology and Metabolism as well as other related subjects.
The membership of EMSON has grown steadily over the years to about two hundred (200) members comprising both fellows, fellows in training and people in the academia and corporate organizations. The society in her efforts to meet up with her mission, has set up several study groups to cover different areas of endocrinology and diabetes mellitus. These study groups are expected to design, and execute collaborative researches and disseminate their findings during the scientific conferences of the society.
About the Journal
African Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism was founded in 1990 as an official journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism Society of Nigeria (EMSON), formerly known as Nigerian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (NSEM).
As the title of the journal suggests, it is open to all areas of research in endocrinology, both experimental (animal and human) and clinical endocrinology.
It features papers dealing with molecular and cellular biology, animal and human physiology, clinical laboratory practice and metabolism. As the journal addresses
All endocrinological subspecialities, it will emphasize reviews in order to keep the readers informed about the state-of-the-art in fields more distant from their own.
African Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism will also publish supplements
The African Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism strives for excellence. It depends on the quality of the manuscripts received. All readers are requested to submit high quality papers to the journal.
We hope that African Journal of Endocrinology will be attractive to its readers and will serve serve as a widely accepted International forum for scientific exchange in endocrinology and metabolism.
