Mission Statement: We aim to improve the care of persons with urological diseases and symptoms, through the education of physicians and patients with high quality medical publications.

Editorial Content: European Urology is the premier specialist journal in the field of Urology and Nephrology. We publish important, practice challenging manuscripts to educate our readers and improve the care of our patients. To keep up to date with the rapidly evolving world of medicine, the editorial team regularly review the journal’s content, structure and mode of delivery. European Urology publishes peer-reviewed original articles, state of the art reviews and opinion piece editorials on a wide range of urological problems. The journal is published monthly and the default format is a digital, electronic platform.

Journal Impact: European Urology is the official journal of the European Association of Urology (EAU) and has been a prestigious urological forum for over 35 years. The journal is currently read by more than 20,000 urologists across the globe. Despite our name, most readers come from beyond Europe.
