Journal Information

Diabesityis a unique peer-reviewed open access interdisciplinary journal intended to publish high-quality original research on the pathogenesis of diabetes, obesity and their complications. As such the journal prioritizes studies on metabolic syndrome as a whole uncovering new knowledge on the physiology and pathophysiology of diabetes and obesity.

Diabesity focuses on clinical and experimental pharmacology and therapeutics in any aspect of metabolic and endocrine disease, either in humans or animal and cellular systems. Submitted manuscripts can report any aspect of laboratory, animal, or human research, normal and pathologic pancreatic islet function and intermediary metabolism, pharmacological mechanisms of drug and hormone action, and biochemical and molecular aspects of normal and abnormal biological processes. Diabesity also welcomes manuscripts on clinical nutrition, adipogenesis and lipid metabolism, neuroscience, transgenic models, metabolic syndrome, nutrition behavior, pediatric obesity, and adipocyte cell biology.

The mission of Diabesity is to provide basic researchers and all clinicians involved in the care of people with diabetes with information on advances and the effects of new or existing therapies, including dietary, exercise and lifestyle (non-pharmacological) interventions, either in humans or animal and cellular systems.

Manuscripts investigating pharmacological and toxicological mechanisms of action and clinical studies contributing to the understanding of specific pathological problems will be given priority review and publication. Published quarterly with an open-access mandate, Discovery Diabesity offers prompt publication and presents new information on diabetes and obesity. Unsolicited review articles that are balanced, comprehensive and provide new and/or critical analysis of any aspect of drug therapy (or non-pharmacological intervention) relevant to patients with diabetes, obesity or metabolic disorders will also be considered.
