The field of Andrology, emerging over the last 40 years, has produced several specialty journals covering both basic scientific and clinical areas. The International Journal of Andrology (IJA) began publication in 1978 and became the official journal of the European Academy of Andrology (EAA) in 1992. The American Society of Andrology (ASA) launched the Journal of Andrology (JA) in 1980. These two leading journals in the field of Andrology are now combined into a single, even more prominent journal, Andrology. Andrology serves to increase the visibility, impact and prominence of both journals, and to better promote the field of Andrology, together with the work of the EAA and ASA.
