Journal of Neuroendocrinology was launched in 1989 and has been the official journal of the British Society for Neuroendocrinology ever since. Published for the BSN by Wiley, all the journal’s content, including free virtual issues, accepted articles published online in advance of issues, and the archive of content reaching as far back as the first article on melatonin receptors, can be found on the journal’s website.

Journal of Neuroendocrinology is also the official journal of the European Neuroendocrine Association and the International Neuroendocrine Federation. Information on how to subscribe can be found here. Generally, BSN membership includes a subscription to the journal.

Aims and Scope

Journal of Neuroendocrinology provides the principal international focus for the newest ideas in classical neuroendocrinology and its expanding interface with the regulation of behavioural, cognitive, developmental, degenerative and metabolic processes. Through the rapid publication of original manuscripts and provocative review articles, it provides essential reading for basic scientists and clinicians researching in this rapidly expanding field.

In determining content, the primary considerations are excellence, relevance and novelty. While Journal of Neuroendocrinology reflects the broad scientific and clinical interests of the BSN membership, the editorial team, led by Professor Julian Mercer, ensures that the journal’s ethos, authorship, content and purpose are those expected of a leading international publication.


An international journal intended to act as a focus for the newest ideas, knowledge and technology in the neurosciences which are contributing to the rapid growth of neuroendocrinology. Original manuscripts dealing with vertebrate, invertebrate and clinical systems are published. The readership consists of neuroendocrinologists who are working at the interface between the nervous and endocrine systems.
