Portuguese Society of Metabolic Diseases Partners with Bentham Science Journals PRESS RELEASE DATE : 02-February-2022

Bentham Science has signed partnership with the Portuguese Society of Metabolic Diseases for its high impact journals, Current Drug Metabolism (JCR IF: 3.731), Endocrine, Metabolic & Immune Disorders – Drug Targets (JCR IF: 2.895) and Drug Metabolism Letters. This partnership enables members of the society to publish their research in these journals with a considerable discount on Gold Open Access. The members also get the opportunity to avail concession in the charges on personal subscription for the journals.

Portuguese Society of Metabolic Disorders (SPDM), founded in 2002, is a scientific society whose main goal is to bring together professionals from different fields under the scope of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM). SPDM aims to promote awareness of IEM, implementing early diagnosis and therapy in order to increase the quality of life and social integration of all patients.

SPDM encourages scientific research, development of diagnosis and therapeutic protocols and organizes regular clinical and laboratory meetings, pre and postgraduate courses, as well as an annual International Symposium. SPDM promotes and supports the training of professionals in the field of IEM, awarding several scholarships and grants. For more information, please visit:
