Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy


Aims and Scope

Editor-in-Chief: Professor Ming Zou

Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal. The journal is committed to the rapid publication of the latest laboratory and clinical findings that lead to establishing new paradigms in the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, or obesity. The journal welcomes original research manuscripts, reviews, expert opinions, and commentaries relating to all aspects of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy will no longer consider meta-analyses for publication.

Specific topics covered by the journal include:

  • Pathophysiological processes underlying diabetes, obesity, or metabolic syndrome
  • Diagnosis and prognosis
  • Novel therapeutic strategies
  • Epidemiology, screening, and detection
  • Preventative measures
  • Management programs
  • Quality of life, adherence, and satisfaction
  • Comorbid disorders of the thyroid
  • Lipid metabolism disorders

The journal will consider case reports and study protocols only if they make a valuable and original contribution to the literature.

When considering submission of a paper utilizing publicly available data, authors should ensure that such studies add significantly to the body of knowledge and that they are validated using the authors’ own data through replication in an original sample.

Plant extract studies will only be considered if the active compound has been identified and validated.
