Pediatric Endocrine Society members have various backgrounds and specialized interests.

Within the Society, smaller groups of investigators interested in specific aspects of Pediatric Endocrinology tend to form, and the Society can serve as a platform for the formation of such Special Interest Groups (SIGs). SIGs provide a forum for interested members to collaborate and facilitate communication in a particular area of Pediatric Endocrinology. They provide a valuable venue for our membership to network with other colleagues sharing similar interests, to provide a forum to discuss issues concerning topics relevant to the SIGS, and work towards goals that will benefit the membership of the Pediatric Endocrine Society at large. The following document is intended to provide guidelines for PES Special Interest group (SIG)-generated or -directed manuscripts.
