  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.
