Why submit

Non-coding RNAs in Endocrinology is a first specialty journal presenting interesting and notable findings from non-coding RNA biology in endocrine disease. Although the major focus of the journal will be to present research and views on ncRNAs in adiposity, diabetes and its complications, the journal also welcomes articles presenting the role of ncRNAs in other endocrine diseases. Considering the increasing prevalence of diabetes and obesity all over the world, this is an apt addition to the scientific community. The journal editors are committed to transparent, comprehensive and rapid reviewing of manuscripts. Excellent editorial staff support provides the opportunity to all authors for a fast review process wherein the first response would be generally between 2 to 4 weeks of submission. All manuscripts are submitted online through the manuscript submission system and are guaranteed immediate attention. All accepted manuscripts are corrected for language suitability by our highly trained language editors.
Lastly, the journal offers a unique publishing concept that there are no journal issues. This means less waiting time for accepted articles from being allocated to specific issues.

All of this presents ncRNAs Endocrinol as a unique platform for authors to submit, publish and share their work to the scientific community.

  • focus on the aims and scope of the journal;
  • be clearly and correctly written - should contain all essential features of a scientific publication that is easy to understand for the target audience;
  • written in English - attention to detail of the language will avoid severe misunderstandings which might lead to rejection of the paper;
  • be delivered in electronic format.

The journal accepts the following publication formats:

  • Research Articles
  • Communications and Rapid Communications
  • Reviews and Mini-Reviews
  • Commentaries
  • Letters to the Editor and Amendments

Cover Letter

It is important that authors include a cover letter with their manuscript. Please explain why you consider your manuscript as suitable for publication in the journal, why will your paper inspire the other members of your field, and how will it drive research forward.
The letter should contain all important details such as:

  • your full name (submitted by)
  • full title of article and short title
  • full list of authors with affiliations
  • e-mail of the corresponding author
  • contact address, telephone/fax numbers of the corresponding author
  • number of attached files, if there is more than one
  • status: new, reviewed or accepted (with reference ID if reviewed or accepted)

Cover letter should explicitly state that the manuscript (or one with substantially the same content, by any of the authors) has not been previously published in any language anywhere and that it is not under simultaneous consideration or in press by another journal. If related work has been submitted, then we may require a preprint to be made available. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the overlap between the related submissions.

Manuscripts that have been previously rejected, or withdrawn after being returned for modification, may be resubmitted if the major criticisms have been addressed. The cover letter must state that the manuscript is a resubmission, and the former manuscript number should be provided.

Conflict of interest declaration
To ensure fair and objective decision-making, authors must declare any associations that pose a conflict of interest in connection with evaluated manuscripts (see Editorial Policy for details).

Formatting Requirements
We accept submission of text, tables and figures as separate files or as a composite file. For your initial submission, we recommend you upload your entire manuscript, including tables and figures, as a single PDF file. If you are invited to submit a revised manuscript, please provide us with individual files: an editable text and publication-quality figures.

  • Text files can be submitted in the following formats: MS Word - standard DOCUMENT (.DOC) or RICH TEXT FORMAT (.RTF); PDF (not applicable for re-submitted or accepted manuscripts, see below)
  • Tables should be submitted as MS Word or PDF (not applicable for re-submitted or accepted manuscripts, see below). Please note that a straight Excel file is not an acceptable format
  • Graphics files can be submitted in any of the following graphic formats: EPS; BMP; JPG; TIFF; GIF or PDF. Please note that Powerpoint files are not accepted

Post acceptance, text files of the revised manuscript and tables are required for use in the production.

Authors should clearly indicate location of tables and figures in the text if these elements are given separately or at the end of the manuscript. If this information is not provided to the editorial office, we will assume that they should be left at the end of the text.
