ESA adopts Clinical Endocrinology as its Society Journal
Clinical Endocrinology is published monthly by Wiley-Blackwell. It is a high profile international journal with an Impact Factor of 3.396. It is the affiliated journal of the UK-based Society for Endocrinology and now, as a result of a decision by the ESA Council, it has also been adopted as the official journal of the ESA. The ESA President. Peter Ebeling has become a member of the Clinical Endocrinology Board and he will replace Stephen Judd as editor in 2014.A number of benefits have already flowed as a result of this affiliation:
- All ESA members have free electronic access to the Journal, through the Society's website. This includes all the original scientific papers, the two Review papers in each issue and the Clinical Questions. This access extends to all previous papers published since 1972.
- Members also have access to the Journal's virtual issue of Clinical Questions from previous years, which provide expert opinions about specific clinical issues – a very popular component of the Journal.
- In addition, ESA members have access to a virtual issue of the most downloaded papers published in 2012, including many Reviews, the Editors' Choice papers and some Society Guidelines. Further compilations of articles are planned to assist trainees with Journal Club presentations etc.
- Wiley-Blackwell will publish the abstracts of the Annual Scientific Meeting, giving these recognition as a publication.
- There will be a greater level of recognition for clinical members of the ESA, as invitees for submission of Reviews and Clinical Questions, Commentaries etc.
Other benefits are likely to result as the partnership evolves:
- Clinical Endocrinology has a proposal for the ESA Council to provide a prize for the best clinical case presented by a trainee at the Clinical Weekend meeting. This offers the opportunity for a trainee to see their presentation in print.
- A number of other proposals are in the pipeline, which are designed to provide benefit to members of the ESA in the broader educational area.
- Closer liaison between ESA and SfE, particularly in sharing educational, CPD and training material.
