Established in 1996, Bioscientifica Ltd is the commercial subsidiary of the Society for Endocrinology, and provides publishing, events, and association management services to biomedical societies, and to the pharmaceutical industry.[1][2] Although the company generates profits, these are redistributed to Bioscientifica's partner societies to fund biomedical research and practice.[3]


Bioscientifica publishes academic journals and case reports focused on endocrinology, and its intersecting disciplines. According to the 2014 Journal Citation Reports, five of Bioscientifica’s publications have an impact factor: Endocrine-Related Cancer, Journal of Endocrinology, Journal of Molecular Endocrinology, European Journal of Endocrinology, and Reproduction (journal).[4][5]

In February 2012, Bioscientifica was among the first 24 publishers to sign the STM Association’s Sustainable Open Access Statement.[6][7] Bioscientifica currently publishes three open access journals, supports gold open access publication in its subscription journals, and makes all journal content free to read online 12 months after publication.[8]

As part of its charitable remit, Bioscientifica participates in the HINARI programme, through which the publisher provides free access to its journals in developing countries.[9]
