International Journal of Steroids

Aims and Scope

International Journal of Steroids (IJS) is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that provides a platform for researchers from all disciplines to publish the latest advances in steroid research. In particular, the International Journal of Steroids (IJS) aims to advance research in the field of steroids, from basic molecular biology to endocrinology, to medical applications. We welcome manuscripts from both interdisciplinary and specialized fields, especially those that bridge the gap between basic science and clinical studies. In order to cover a range of topics, we accept submissions from the following areas of research: biochemistry, pharmacology, and clinical medicine.


IJS covers topics related to steroids, such as clinical studies and therapeutic applications, analytical and synthetic methods, cellular and molecular aspects, and the pharmacology of steroid hormones, clinical and molecular, immunology, and pharmacology, hormones and related areas in biomedical science with a focus on scientific study, clinical applications, and therapeutics, steroid biochemistry, hormone action, biosynthesis, metabolism and diagnostics of steroid-based disorders, translation of new steroid biology data into clinical practice, and new therapeutic advances, hormonal regulation of steroid hormones; nutrition, metabolism and behavioral effects of steroid hormones; clinical pharmacology; pharmacogenomics; clinical research on steroid hormones; and environmental toxicology of steroids. The International Journal of Steroids supports relevant research in all areas of fundamental and translational medicine, including clinical medicine and veterinary medicine. The journal strives to promote quality publishing and bring light to all the important work that is being carried out in the research field.


IJS publishes papers of the highest quality that focus on the full spectrum of hormone-related topics. We encourage innovative research that has the potential to create advances in the clinical, diagnostic, or therapeutic uses of steroids. Our aim is to foster collaboration between basic and clinical research, to better understand and apply the hormones and steroid molecules in the clinical setting. This includes all aspects of steroid scaffolds, including synthesis, analysis, and clinical implications.


The scope of IJS covers a wide range of research topics related to the endocrine system, including but not limited to, molecular biology, physiology, and clinical research. In addition, the Journal encourages the submission of manuscripts describing the developments in the fundamentals of analysis and synthesis of steroids, patency of new steroids, and assessment of the efficacy, safety, and metabolism of steroid hormones. IJS is dedicated to publishing cutting-edge studies on the hormones derived from the three main families of steroid hormones. These hormones include cholesterol-derived steroids, testosterone-derived derivatives, and thyroid hormone-derived molecules.


IJS features high-quality scholarly work from all areas of steroid research, including endocrinologists, pharmaceutical chemists, biochemists, and pharmacologists. The articles in this journal are carefully reviewed by both a highly experienced Editorial Board and peer reviewers from many related fields.
