Editorial Policies and Process
The Journal of Obesity and Weight Loss follows a progressive editorial policy that encourages researchers to submit the original research, reviews and editorial observations as articles, well supported by tables and graphic representation.
Article Processing Charges (APC):
Journal of Obesity and Weight Loss Therapy is self-financed and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the Journal operates solely through processing charges we receive from the authors and some academic/corporate sponsors. The handling fee is required to meet its maintenance. Being an Open Access Journal, Journal of Obesity and Weight Loss Therapy does not collect subscription charges from readers that enjoy free online access to the articles. Authors are hence required to pay a fair handling fee for processing their articles. However, there are no submission charges. Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscript has been accepted for publication.
Average Article prorcessing time (APT) is 55 days
The basic article processing fee or manuscript handling cost is as per the price mentioned above on the other hand it may vary based on the extensive editing, colored effects, complex equations, extra elongation of no. of pages of the article, etc.
Authors are required to make payment after their manuscript has been accepted for publication. Authors of accepted peer-reviewed articles have the choice to pay a fee to allow unrestricted online access to their published article to readers globally, immediately upon publication. The article processing charge for Journal of Obesity & weight loss therapy is Euro 1819. Payment must be received in full for the article to be published open access. Article Partial processing charge is also applicable to withdraw or retract the manuscript. The basic article processing fee or manuscript handling cost is as per the price mentioned above on the other hand it may vary based on the extensive editing, colored effects, complex equations, extra elongation of no. of pages of the article, etc. If you have concerns or questions about it, please contact us for further discussion. We welcome your input.
From time to time, an author may wish to withdraw a manuscript after submitting it. Changing one's mind is an author's prerogative. And an author is free to withdraw an article at no charge - within a week of its original submission. After a week, if author wishes to withdraw the article, it will be subjected to payment of partial processing fee. Each submission costs the publisher certain amount along with overhead cost during processing. Once peer review is completed on that manuscript (which can often happen within a week), and it has been worked into a journal issue, we have incurred costs on our end that need to be reimbursed. The Authors need to pay 50% of the original article processing fee in case of withdrawal.
Submission of an Article
In order to reduce delays, authors should adhere to the level, length and format of the OMICS International Journals at every stage of processing right from manuscript submission to each revision stage. Submitted articles should have a 300 words summary/abstract, separate from the main text. The summary should provide a brief account of the work by clearly stating the purpose of the study and the methodology adopted, highlighting major findings briefly. The text may contain a few short subheadings of no more than 40 characters each.
With an objective to make scientific and health care information globally available, OMICS International has launched Translation Services. As per the interest of the scientific community from non-English speaking territories, we have introduced this new feature to facilitate authors to reach a global audience in many major world languages. OMICS Translation Services help the scientific community to have easy access to all scientific articles not only in English but also in French and German. The scientific translations service grants a global presence to the authors and their research. Our language experts in French and German translate articles from English to the desired world languages and vice-versa as per the author’s requirement. As an open access publisher OMICS International does not get any financial contributions from other organizations. Authors who wish to use our translation services and who are interested in publishing their research in the above-mentioned languages are requested to pay the following charges in addition to the article processing charges.

Letters to the Editor/Concise Communications
Acknowledgements: This section includes acknowledgment of people, grant details, funds, etc.
Note: If an author fails to submit his/her work as per the above instructions, they are pleased to maintain clear titles namely headings, subheading.
References: Only published or accepted manuscripts should be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. All personal communications should be supported by a letter from the relevant authors. OMICS uses the numbered citation (citation-sequence) method. References are listed and numbered in the order that they appear in the text. In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: "... now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the manuscript are in the correct order for the relevant journal before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the manuscript. Authors are requested to provide at least one online link for each reference as following (preferably PubMed). Because all references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the papers they cite, proper formatting of the references is crucial. Please use the following style for the reference list:
Examples Published Papers
Note: Please list the first five authors and then add "et al." if there are additional authors.
Electronic Journal Articles Entrez Programming Utilities
These should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. We strongly encourage authors to submit tables as .doc format. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text. Cells can be copied from an Excel spreadsheet and pasted into a word document, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.
Note: If the submission is in PDF format, the author is requested to retain the same in .doc format in order to aid in completion of process successfully.
The preferred file formats for photographic images are .doc, TIFF and JPEG. If you have created images with separate components on different layers, please send us the Photoshop files. All images must be at or above intended display size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close to the actual image as possible.Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.
Figure legends: These should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet
Tables and Equations as Graphics
If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the data for one equation). Only when tables cannot be encoded as XML/SGML can they be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font size in all equations and tables is consistent and legible throughout all submissions.
Discrete items of the Supplementary Information (for example, figures, tables) referred to at an appropriate point in the main text of the paper. All Supplementary Information is supplied as a single PDF file, where possible. File size within the permitted limits for Supplementary Information. Images should be a maximum size of 640 x 480 pixels (9 x 6.8 inches at 72 pixels per inch).
Proofs and Reprints
Electronic proofs will be sent as an e-mail attachment to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript and no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Authors can freely download the PDF file. Hard copies of the documents are available on request. Please click on the link for the charges. https://www.omicsonline.org/pdfs/OMICS-Group-reprints-order-form.pdf
