Elsevier Announces the Launch of a New Journal: Obesity Medicine

Amsterdam, September 22, 2015

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces the launch of a new journal: Obesity Medicine.

Obesity Medicine will provide the latest information in clinical research on obesity. It will serve clinical scientists in all disciplines, medical practitioners, health-care providers as well as social scientists and the public interested in scientific information on all aspects of obesity.

The journal welcomes papers on original observations and research on the causes of obesity, prevention and treatment, comorbidities and social and psychological as well as societal and financial impacts. In addition, state-of-the-art reviews and an occasional prismatic case will be published.

Professor Wieland Kiess MD (University of Leipzig), Editor-in-Chief of Obesity Medicine, said, “Obesity Medicine aims to publish research combining translational and interdisciplinary work. A team of international scientists have been selected as Editorial Board and Associate Editors and will support me in my work as editor. We very much look forward to working with our authors and readers in developing what we hope will become a key reference for obesity research.”

Andrew Miller PhD, Executive Publisher at Elsevier, said, “We are proud to launch Obesity Medicine given the challenging and highly significant nature of the disease internationally. We look forward to developing it in liaison with Professor Kiess and other leading researchers in the community to help advance research, education and treatment in obesity.”

The journal will appear four times a year online and will be rolled out in Elsevier’s brand new electronic submission and review system EVISE®. The journal will also follow the Article Based Publishing scheme, allowing papers to appear fully citable online just shortly after acceptance.
