Society for Endocrinology Archive


What is the Society for Endocrinology Archive?

The Society for Endocrinology Archive is an online collection of material published from 1939 to the end of December 1997 inclusive. The archive is hosted by PubFactory and PDFs are text searchable.

The Archive includes papers from:

  • Journal of Endocrinology from volume 1 in 1939 to December 1997;
  • Journal of Molecular Endocrinology from volume 1 in 1988 to December 1997;
  • Endocrine-Related Cancer from volume 1 in 1994 to December 1997.

There are over 10,700 articles and 93,000 pages in one archive.

Papers published from 1998 up to 12 months before the current issues continue to be available free.


Why did the Society digitize the back volumes?

As a non-profit organization, the Society for Endocrinology is dedicated to the advancement of scientific and clinical education and research in endocrinology. By making the papers from 1939 available online the Society fulfils its mission and provides the endocrine community with a valuable archive of key papers relevant to endocrinologists today.

The Society is grateful to the University of Bristol Library, the Roslin Institute, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, and AstraZeneca, who provided copies of the early volumes.
