This selection could provide a promising step for APEM to become an influential international journal. Thanks to dedication of the former editorial boards, APEM has been indexed in PubMed Central (PMC) since 2014, Embase since 2017, Scopus and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) since 2018.

Since 2012, the title is changed to 'Annals of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism.' The Journal is published quarterly on the official APEM website ( to be distributed to institutions all over the world.
