The aim of the journal is to publish high quality research on obesity and diabetes mellitus to the national and international scientific community, sharing and creating a continuous training platform to contribute to the provision of scientific and social communication in Turkey and abroad. In pursuit of these objectives, original research articles, case reports, reviews, letters to the editor, biography, writings and conference proceedings in article format are published. The papers for studies which were previously presented at a symposium, congress, or electronic media can be published provided that this is stated. The manuscripts will be reviewed for publication with the conditions that they are being submitted to one journal at a time and have not been published, simultaneously submitted or already accepted for publication elsewhere. Editor and assistant editors review all submitted manuscripts initially. Then the manuscript is sent to the scientific advisory board member for evaluation. All the articles submitted to the journal for publication are referred to peer review. Corrections can be made in appropriate cases. Authors may answer some questions and may be asked to revise their articles. Articles decided to be published in the journal would be taken in the process of page arrangement. At this stage, all the articles are checked for the accuracy of the information they give. Prior to publication, articles are finalized and submitted to authors for approval.
