Aims & scope
Thyroid Research is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal that encompasses all aspects of thyroid hormones and thyroid diseases and their interaction with the cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastroenterological, metabolic and nervous systems.
The aim of the journal is to present the newest knowledge related to thyroid hormones and thyroid diseases and any related fields, thus encompassing a wide range of thyroidology topics including, diagnosis, pharmacological and other treatment methods, invasive treatment, physiological mechanisms of thyroid hormone action and regulation, immunological aspects, genetics, new guidelines in disease management, thyroid related diseases and complications.
Thyroid Research aims to provide a platform for scientists and physicians from all over the world on which to publish manuscripts on thyroidology; the fastest developing area of endocrinology.
"Thyroid Research is developing particularly rapidly. There is an increase in thyroid cancer treatment options, not only surgery and radioactive iodine but also using a new generation of drugs - inhibitors of tyrosine kinases. There has been a rapid development of genetics in relation to both carcinogenesis in the thyroid, and as regards predisposition to autoimmune thyroid diseases. Gradually, in various countries around the world iodine deficiency disorders are becoming rarer; they are eliminated as a result of effective iodine prophylaxis."
