Are you a practicing urologist, a resident, a researcher? Whatever your interests are, the EAU is here to meet your needs. You are invited to explore all facets of a dynamic professionally managed organisation representing Europe’s urological professionals.

European Urology

European Urology, the official journal of the EAU, has been a prestigious urological forum for over 35 years, and is currently read by more than 20,000 urologists across the globe. With an recently released 2013 Impact Factor of 12.480, the journal has become the leading scientific publication in the field of urology & nephrology journals according to the ISI Thompson Journal Citation Reports.

To keep up with the rapidly evolving world of medicine, technology and surgical techniques, European Urology is constantly updating and innovating its features and layout in order to provide the best clinical guidance, research and education for urologists across Europe and the world.

Elsevier is the publisher of European Urology, the official journal of the European Association of Urology.

European Urology publishes peer-reviewed original articles and topical reviews on a wide range of urological problems. Topics such as oncology, impotence, infertility, pediatrics, lithiasis and endourology, as well as recent advances in techniques, instrumentation, surgery and pediatric urology provide readers with a complete guide to international developments in urology.

Nocturia Resource Centre

A Resource Centre is a freely accessible platform, designed for healthcare professionals, that aims to increase clinical knowledge in a specific medical specialty by disseminating important new research and clinical developments more broadly. Resource Centres are all independently editorially controlled, provided in collaboration with established medical journals, hosted and managed by Elsevier, and funded by educational grants from societies and other organizations, such as medical or pharmaceutical companies.

Nocturia is an important area medically and has a significant impact on quality of life. The Nocturia Resource Centre aims to increase awareness and knowledge about all aspects of Nocturia. Urologists are the primary specialist who will see patients with this problem and it is expected that they will play a major role in the further diagnosis and organization of treatment.

Nocturia is a bothersome and highly prevalent condition defined by the International Continence Society as the need to wake one or more times nightly to void with each void preceded and followed by sleep.  

Studies of the relationship between QOL and nocturia suggest that the condition becomes clinically significant when 2 or more voids nightly are experienced. Among LUTS, nocturia is consistently reported to be one of the most bothersome symptoms by men as well as women and significantly compromises sleep and overall QoL

European Society of Pediatric Urology

The European Society for Paediatric Urology is a non-profit society whose main purpose is to promote paediatric urology, appropriate practice, education as well as exchanges between practitioners involved in the treatment of genito urinary disorders in children.

Journal of Pediatric Urology

To advance and improve the education in Pediatric Urology and the diffusion of knowledge of new and improved methods of teaching and practising pediatric urology in all its branches.


  • The Journal of Pediatric Urology publishes submitted research and clinical articles relating to Pediatric Urology which have been accepted after adequate peer review.
  • It publishes regular articles that have been submitted after invitation, that cover the curriculum of Pediatric Urology, and enable trainee surgeons to attain theoretical competence of the sub-specialty.
  • It publishes regular reviews of pediatric urological articles appearing in other journals.
  • It publishes invited review articles by recognised experts on modern or controversial aspects of the sub-specialty.
  • It enables any affiliated society to advertise society events or information in the journal without charge and will publish abstracts of papers to be read at society meetings.

The British Association of Paediatric Urologists & The British Association of Paediatric Urology and Continence Nurses

Since the foundation in 1992 of the British Association of Paediatric Urologists we have provided a forum for surgeons involved in the care of children with urological condition to meet, discuss standards and coordinate guidance. We offer an annual course aimed at updating surgeons in the current practice of paediatric urology.  This is a useful part in the preparation for the FRCS in Urology or Paediatric Surgery.

We have strong links with our sister association the British Association of Paediatric Urology Nurses (BAPUN) and other surgical and medical groups involved in the care of these complex children locally, nationally and internationally.

Advance Prostate Cancer Resource Centre

Diagnosis and treatment of metastatic and castration resistant prostate cancer became more and more and complex due to the increasing knowledge and understanding of the underlying molecular events and the subsequently deducted innovative medical treatment.

Modern imaging studies in CRPC have become more selective and currently include positron emission tomography, whole body magnetic resonance imaging, immunoscintigraphy besides the traditional studies such as bone scans and computed tomography.

Until recently the management of metastatic prostate cancer was straightforward with primary and secondary androgen deprivation followed by docetaxel-based chemotherapy once castration resistant disease had developed. This quite simple approach has changed dramatically over the last 2-3 years. Abiraterone acetate, Enzalutamide, and Radium-223 represent new active drugs which have been shown to improve survival in the pre- and in the post docetaxel era. Current clinical trials even evaluate the role of Enzalutamide and Abiraterone acetate as primary hormonal therapeutic approach. Sipuleucel-T, tasquinimod, and ipilimumab have been shown to exert some immunomodulatory effects with a significant therapeutic response in metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer. Innovative cytotoxic drugs such as cabazitaxel and molecular targeted approaches provide novel sequencing options to improve the treatment for patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer.

The treating urologists and oncologists are often overwhelmed by the many new developing aspects in diagnosis and treatment of castration resistant prostate cancer and might be overstrained to adequately assess the clinical relevance of the new developments.

With the new tool of the Prostate Cancer Resource Centre, it is our goal to offer an informative platform to the interested uro-oncologist with regard to the latest developments in the management of castration resistant prostate cancer. We will inform the community about the most recent publications and clinical trials, and we will have international specialists referring their appraisal and experience with the new substances.

Uro Onco Resource Centre

The European Association of Urology and Elsevier are proud to present URO ONCO, the new online educational platform for all healthcare professionals in uro-oncology.

URO ONCO provides up-to-date information on developments in the field of urological malignancies. With urological tumours presenting three of the ten most commonly found cancers, the need for up-to-date cancer management knowledge is essential for urologists. New developments in the field of prostate and kidney cancer have involved other specialties such as medical oncology and radiotherapy, making cancer management a truly multidisciplinary endeavor. URO ONCO will keep you informed on the latest clinical trial findings, meeting reports, and interviews with experts. Giving you the latest insight into the backgrounds of these trials and how you can implement the findings in your everyday practice. Presentations from recent meetings will be available on URO ONCO and each topic is selected by a team of expert editors. Additional resources are also provided, with links to publications and abstracts from other relevant materials.

URO ONCO connects you rapidly to the latest information about oncology in urology.
