The 2nd most cited open-access journal in Endocrinology & Metabolism
The section aims to become a platform for the publication of high quality research concerning all aspects of thyroid research, across all species and in all multiple aspects, and from molecular biology to clinical studies. We welcome contributions including cutting edge discoveries in the area of thyroid physiopathology, basic related science, cellular and animal physiology, as well as - and most importantly - human thyroid diseases, therapy and treatment outcomes. Finally, the section aims to foster communication in the field across different specialties, e.g. PhDs, medical doctors, and geneticists.
Please note that since beginning of 2018 the section Thyroid Endocrinology is no longer open for Case Report submissions.

Thyroid Endocrinology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Clinical Study Protocol, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Protocols, Review, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Thyroid Endocrinology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Thyroid Endocrinology 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.
