World Journal of Endocrine Surgery

by Amit Agarwal

Aims & Scope

The World Journal of Endocrine Surgery (WJOES) is a double-blind peer-reviewed open access journal providing a forum for high-quality papers pertaining to all areas of the pathophysiology and pathobiology of endocrine diseases, medical and surgical management of disorders of endocrine glands. The journal also focuses on highlighting the training tools in the field of endocrine surgery as well as highlight issues of public health importance related to endocrine sciences. The journal also publishes well written manuscripts from lesser-known centres around the world so that these centres come into the mainstream of the field of endocrine surgery. The journal focuses on publishing experience on rare familial endocrinopathies so that readers can benefit from the few centres of excellence in the area of rare endocrine disorders. The journal aims to publish all aspects of basic, translational, and clinical research in the field of endocrinology and endocrine sciences as well as allied specialties like pathology, nuclear medicine, radiology and radiotherapy, focussing on advancement and dissemination of multidisciplinary knowledge.

Open Access Policy

A comprehensive outlook on open access policy that we follow:

Open access refers to the practice of making peer-reviewed scholarly research and literature freely available online to anyone interested in reading it at no cost and with limited restrictions with regards to reuse.  Open access publications are freely and permanently available online to anyone with an internet access. The journal allows unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium (which is non-commercial), provided the article is properly attributed. All the articles are published, without any technical, financial, gender limitations, in an agreed format on the journal website and deposited in archive and indexing databases as applicable to the journal. All articles are assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), thereby making it fully citable and searchable by title, author name(s) and the full text.  

Why open access publishing?

Restricted access to scientific research and advancements through subscription pay wall hinders communication within the scientific community. Moreover, restricted access can also hinder the education and dissemination of scientific knowledge to the aspiring younger generations who are keen to pursue a career in science. Increased productivity and development of science can only be achieved by diffusing knowledge and providing the facilities for creating permanent repositories such as Open Access. 

The use of a Creative Commons 4.0 License (CC-BY-NC 4.0) enables user/reader/peer to use the content with clear permission in a way that it can be reused and redistributed as long as the article source is appropriately given credit for non-commercial purpose. 

Self-Archiving Policy for Authors

Authors are encouraged to deposit the final published PDF in their institutional repository or any suitable subject repository (according to the end-user license of the article, i.e., strictly for non-commercial re-use) immediately upon publication. The deposited version should contain the URL and link to the online published version on the publisher’s website to clearly identify it as the definitive version of record.

Abstract and Citation information

Authors can share the Abstract and “How to cite” information (e.g., Title, Author name, Publication dates) of their article anywhere at any time including social media such as Facebook, blogs and Twitter, with proper attribution to the original source (the Publisher website) or include the DOI number in the social media post that links it to the published article on the Journal website.

Submitted Version

Submitted version (SV) or the preprint version is recognized as the author version of an article before submission to a journal for peer review. The author accepts full responsibility for the article, and the content and layout are set out by the author. 

Authors can post their preprint version on preprint servers of the authors’ choice, authors’ or institutional websites, preprint servers or preprint commenting platforms, intended for non-commercial use. When submitting the manuscript to the journal, authors must disclose all pertinent information regarding preprint publication, such as the DOI and licencing terms. The author must make sure that the preprint record is updated with a publication reference after it is published, including the DOI and a URL link to the journal website where the paper has been published. 

Accepted Manuscript

The accepted manuscript (AM) is the peer reviewed version (not the final published version) as accepted for publication by the journal that includes modifications based on reviewers’ suggestions. This version excludes copy editing and type setting changes.  

The journal does not recommend the authors to upload AM to their personal website/ institutional or other non-commercial subject-based repositories.
