HOME > ABOUT > Editorial policy

The goal of Endocrinology and Metabolism (EnM) is to publish high-quality manuscripts dedicated to clinical or basic research. EnM is published on a bimonthly basis every year, and any authors affiliated with an accredited biomedical institution may submit manuscripts of original articles, review articles, brief reports, and letters to the editor.

The Editor-in-Chief assumes that all authors listed in a manuscript have agreed with the following policies of EnM regarding manuscript submissions. Except for negotiated secondary publications, manuscripts submitted to the Journal must be previously unpublished and not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Under no circumstances will the identities of the referees be revealed. If a new author is added or an author is deleted after a manuscript is submitted, it is the responsibility of the corresponding author to ensure that the author(s) concerned are aware of and agree to the change in authorship. EnM has no responsibility for such changes.

The Editors reserve the right to make corrections, both literary and technical, to the papers. It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that patients’ anonymity is carefully protected and to verify that any experimental investigations with human subjects reported in the manuscript were performed with informed consent, following all guidelines for experimental investigations with human subjects required by the institution(s) with which all the authors are affiliated.

All published manuscripts become the permanent property of the Korean Endocrine Society. The copyright of published manuscripts is held by Korean Endocrine Society. A copyright transfer agreement from all the authors should be sent with the original manuscript submission. The copyright transfer form is available at the journal homepage. EnM is an open access journal and articles are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (, which permits unrestricted, non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited. To use any tables or figures published in EnM in other periodicals, books, or media for scholarly and educational purposes, permission by the publisher of EnM is not necessary.
