Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
The section Translational Endocrinology welcomes submissions from all areas of endocrine research that demonstrate a strong translational focus on moving basic research discoveries to clinical diagnostics, therapeutics and the application of hormonal discoveries in the cause of improving human existence.
The goal of the Translational Endocrinology section is to promote publication of articles that expand the frontiers of endocrine research from basic analyses of molecular and cellular processes to their application in human biology and medicine. With this focus in mind, we welcome manuscripts with a clear emphasis on the translation of basic research results into new developments of diagnostics and therapeutics for the treatment of endocrine disorders. Our core focus areas are:
• Genetic and epigenetic determinants of normal and pathological endocrine cell function
• Secretion, transport and target cell responsivity to hormones
• Cell signaling, second messengers and nuclear receptors in health and disease
• Impact of environmental factors on endocrine control of human development and aging
• Novel research on endocrine technologies to improve and sustain health

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Translational Endocrinology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Study Protocol, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Translational Endocrinology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Translational 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.
