About the Journal

The Société Internationale d’Urologie Journal (SIUJ) is an international, online, open access journal. It publishes original, peer-reviewed work in all areas of urology, and encourages submissions of Original Research, Systematic Review, and Meta-Analysis, as well as submissions in the following sections: Urology Around the World, Commentary, Clinical Picture, Brief Communication, and Letter to the Editor.

The SIUJ is distributed directly to more than 10 000 clinicians and academics in 130 countries, and, as an open access journal, is available to readers worldwide. The journal welcomes submissions on all aspects of urology and related fields from authors in all regions of the world. SIUJ commits to completing the review and decision process as quickly as possible (usually within four weeks), and its continuous publishing model ensures accepted papers are available online as soon as they are approved.
