Scope

Obesity Surgery is the official journal of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity & Metabolic Disorders. The journal represents one of the premier forums for the dissemination of research and clinical knowledge within the international community of bariatric/metabolic treatment providers of all disciplines. Obesity Surgery communicates the latest research, surgical and endoscopic techniques, and most recent advances in the integrated health care for the treatment of obesity and metabolic disorders. The journal publishes highly selective invited and unsolicited peer-reviewed articles involving all aspects of the management and care of patients suffering from obesity. Though there is an emphasis on bariatric/metabolic surgery, the journal is comprehensive in covering the medical management of obesity, general surgery, endoscopy, nutritional science, behavioral science, anesthesia, plastic surgery after weight loss, exercise physiology, endocrinology, diabetology, treatment for eating disorders, and medicolegal issues.

SJR

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
