Aims and Scope
The journal encourages original research, expert review of Obesity Medicine at the lead of epidemiological, translational studies and practice at the clinic. OOA commits to publishing the result of research and clinical practice; case reports interesting to an international audience of dietitians, healthcare practitioners, Family Physicians, public health officials, therapists engaged with obesity, diabetes and related disorders. Also, may be of interests to scientist dedicated to the most updated and substantial medical developments across Human Physiology, Psychology, and Epidemiology.
The core area of interest of OOA includes current epidemiological aspects of obesity, health risks associated with obesity, psychological aspects of obesity and translational studies. The reports cover research subjects pertinent to basic, clinical, and translational studies in the areas of lipid metabolism, Paediatric Obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. The journal focuses on the progress in studies of clinical significance and treatment of patients with nutrition and eating disorders, exercise and human Physiology, weight control and health risks associated with obesity, and the outcome of the interventions proposed.
The journal pursues well-defined papers which prioritise distinction, originality, applicability, accuracy, focus and appeal to the audience. Scientists engaged in research on obesity, Nutrition, diabetes and related disorders, bariatric surgeons, basic scientists working on metabolic function, genetics and molecular biology contribute articles to OOA. OOA is peer-reviewed to assure the scientific value and clinical significance of its diverse content.
