I am very pleased to prepare inaugural editorial for a new Journal “Integrative Obesity and Diabetes (IOD)”. Integrative Obesity and Diabetes is an Open Access publication journal, peer reviewed, scholarly journal dedicated to publish articles in all areas of endocrinology, obesity and diabetes. Journal gives information and aims to publish quality papers on endocrinology, obesity and diabetes and their related diseases. The main scope of Journal includes the complete study of pathogenesis, molecular and cellular aspects, metabolic pathway, diagnosis, treatment, clinical management, epidemiology, complications prevention and novel techniques. Journal aims to provide a forum for researchers, physicians and other healthcare professionals to find most recent advances in the areas of obesity and diabetes.

Obesity and diabetes are the most common metabolic disorder associated with many complications. The condition develops due to abnormalities in eating, carbohydrate metabolism and insulin synthesis. The journal is also focused on cutting edge research in the prevention, pharmacological treatment, management, and education of diabetes and related disorders. Integrative Obesity and Diabetes of Molecular Obesity and Diabetes is publishing the articles on type 1 diabetes mellitus, type 2 diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes, cardio vascular research, osteoporosis, inflammation, cancer, molecular and cellular mechanisms, obesity and diabetes therapy, diabetic drugs, genetics of obesity and diabetes etc. Articles published in this journal are subjected to rigorous peer review and revision process before being accepted for publication, to maintain quality and the standards set for academic journals. This Journal ensures the barrier-free distribution of its content through online free access and thus helps in improving the citations for authors and attaining a good impact factor.
