The 2nd most cited open-access journal in Endocrinology & Metabolism
The Bone Research section aims to publish high quality papers concerning the full spectrum of bone research. This includes basic research related to cell and developmental bone biology, structure and function of skeletal tissues, and bone physiology. The section is also keen to encourage papers addressing the pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and public health impact of adult and paediatric bone disorders. These include, but are not restricted to, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, Paget’s disease, genetic diseases of bone, and related endocrine disorders. Papers where the main focus is not research, but which otherwise contribute to the management of patients with bone disorders through the dissemination of guidelines, findings from working parties, and case reports, are also welcomed.
The Bone Research section is the official publication outlet of the Bone Research Society. The BRS (established in 1950 as the Bone and Tooth Society) is the world's oldest society for bone research. We are happy that this formal agreement has brought a number of mutual benefits, including the subsidization of publication charges in the Journal for BRS members who are corresponding authors of papers submitted to Frontiers. These discounts are only applied upon acceptance after validation of BRS membership. For more information about the final fees for BRS members please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Bone Research welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Review, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Bone Research, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Bone Research will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Endocrinology.
