Perhaps the most tangible achievement of the SSIEM has been its publication. Every one of its symposia has been published and this has provided invaluable review on specific topics in the field of inborn errors of metabolism.

In 1978 the Journal of Inherited Metabolic Disease (JIMD) was launched. Membership now stands at over 1400 and is truly international with members from over 78 different countries.

It publishes original work, in the form of papers, short reports and case reports, covering all aspects of inherited metabolic disorders in man and higher animals: clinical, biochemical, genetic, experimental, epidemiological and ethical.

The Society publishes six to eight issues of the Journal of Inherited Metabolic Disease each year (JIMD). This publication is supplied free of charge to paid up members.

Some of the issues are used to publish selected papers from the annual scientific meeting and symposium.


Membership of the Society is open to all interested in and willing to support the aims of the Society.
