Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome, the official journal of the Brazilian Diabetes Society (SBD), has launched with BioMed Central as the eighth addition to the Independent Journals Portfolio this year.
Through reporting on basic research and clinical studies exploring any area of research into diabetes and metabolic syndrome, the journal hopes to provide a means of increasing knowledge and stimulating research in the field. The journal aims to benefit health care providers by acting as a point of reference for improvement in the management of people afflicted by these conditions.
Passionate about the need for this publication, Editors-in-Chief, Daniel Giannella-Neto and Marilia de Brito Gomes, reflect in their launch editorial on how they hope the journal will provide a dedicated forum that will assist in paving the way to improving the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients, despite the many challenges. Also, excited by the benefits open access, online publishing affords researchers and practitioners in the field, they highlight how “having an open access journal is an excellent way for a professional society like SBD to fulfil its mission of furthering knowledge in its field”.
More details about Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome, including the instructions for authors for those interested in submitting to this exciting new journal, are available from the journal website.
