The Journal of Endoluminal Endourology is a new urological journal which focuses on publishing articles focusing on the growing sector of endoscopic endoluminal surgery of the genito-urinary tract. A wide range of areas are covered including paediatric and adult surgery, in addition to benign and malignant disease. 

Peer Review

An initial in-house quality control check deals with issues such as competing interests, financial disclosures, plagiarism, etc. Submissions may be returned to authors for queries, and will not be seen by our Editorial Board or peer reviewers until they pass this quality control check.

After the quality control check, the Editor of the journal reviews the article, and decides if the article is accepted for review or rejected.  In some cases, where an article is submitted in English, by an author not fluent in English, the article may be sent back with the recommendations to have the article edited for English, and resubmitted.

Once an article has been accepted, it will be sent to a selected editorial board member, based on experience and expertise.  The Editorial Board member will then either act as one of two peer reviewers, or will select two peer reviewers to review the article.  Reviews are double blind.

Questions, comments, and suggestions from peer reviewers will be submitted to the Editor for consideration, after which the article and peer review remarks will be sent to the author.

Once the peer reviewer, Editorial Board member, and Editor are satisfied with the author's changes, the article will be published.

It is our goal to have accepted articles published within 45 days, depending on the level of response from the authors.

Articles are published in both a web version and PDF format.

Article Processing Charges

Journal of Endoluminal Endourology, like other Open Access journals, charges Article Processing Charges (APC) to individual authors and institutions to offset expenses usually covered by the subscriptions and advertisements of subscription-based journals. 

APCs are per article and billed upon acceptance of an article, after it has successfully passed the peer review process. There are no additional charges based on color, length, figures, or other elements.  Letters to the Editor and small commentaries (up to 250 words), and select invited articles are not charged an APC.

An author’s ability to pay APCs is not a consideration in the decision of whether to publish.  Authors living in one of the United Nations' list of Least Developed Countries may request a fee waiver.  See country list here.

Authors living in countries not considered "least developed"  who do not have the ability to pay the APC's may be eligible for a reduced rate. Please contact the publisher directly at jbirkby@dougmargroup.com.

The Article Processing Charge for the Journal of Endoluminal Endourology is US $395.
