Obesity has risen to epidemic levels in many countries. It causes many health-related problems which reduce life expectancy and causes stigma & discrimination in the suffering individuals. To contribute in minimizing such prevalence, knowledge about obesity should be spread as much as possible in effective way. There can be two ways through which an attempt can be made to tackle the problem such as
Continued efforts of government and other organizations which will be valuable toward reducing obesity, so that people can look forward to healthier lives
Recent scientific discoveries & new efforts should be made public to better understand the factors contributing to obesity and to design and test strategies for prevention and treatment.
Journals & publications contribute well towards spreading knowledge about any scientific discovery. These research publications can be selected for increasing knowledge on the basis of various factors such as journal name, impact factor etc. Journals with higher impact factors are often believed to be more important than those with lower ones.
Specifically in the field of obesity, the aim of the obesity research journals is to provide rapid and reliable source of information about obesity and associated areas of obesity in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc and making them freely available through online for researchers & general population.
For researchers, research publications provide honor for the authors if they publish their work, provide a mode of initiating research for other scientists and make them linked with the recent advancements in the specific field.
For general population, research publications help them to pursue research in academic area and provide an approach for gaining information about specific disease to treat & prevent the disease themselves.
There are some journals which can be chosen by researchers & general population for accessing & submitting research publications. These journals specifically related to obesity are:
