Journal of Diabetes & Metabolism is one of the peer-reviewed diabetes journals. Chronic elevation of blood glucose level leads to damage of blood vessels and in turn to chronic complications like Diabetic cardiomyopathy, Diabetic nephropathy, Diabetic neuropath, Diabetic retinopathy etc. Diabetes mellitus is chronic condition in which the blood sugar levels are increased by inadequate production of insulin or if the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin. Diabetes is the most common metabolic disorder associated with many complications. The condition develops due to abnormalities in carbohydrate metabolism and insulin synthesis. The Journal of Diabetes & Metabolism is focused on cutting edge research in the prevention, pharmacological treatment, management, and education of diabetes and related disorders. The glucose metabolism is altered in the people with diabetes.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
