About Obesities


Obesities (ISSN 2673-4168) is an open access journal that provides an advanced forum for studies of obesity in the areas of nutrition, diabetes, bariatric surgery, public health, pediatrics, basic science, exercise, eating disorders, psychology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, molecular, metabolic, epidemiological aspects of obesity, and related disorders. Articles based on novel ideas are widely invited for cellular- and animal-level studies, as well as human trials and epidemiological studies. We encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. There is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. We also encourage the publication of timely reviews and commentaries on topics of interest to obesity research.

Publications can be in the form of reviews, regular research papers, communications, conference reports. Large electronic files, software, movies, etc., that cannot be published in the main paper can be posted as supplementary material.
