SAGE Publishes New Childhood Obesity Journal
SAGE launched Childhood Obesity and Nutrition (OBN), an OA journal, which replaces the non-OA ICAN: Infant, Child & Adolescent Nutrition journal. OBN broadens ICAN’s scope with a focus on the changing field of pediatric obesity and nutrition. It covers practical strategies for obesity and nutrition counseling, psychological and social causes of obesity, public policies for improving children’s nutrition and weight status, and other topics.
“Childhood Obesity and Nutrition strives to carve out a unique niche among scientific publications devoted to the serious public health problem of … obesity among children and adolescents,” says Goutham Rao, OBN’s editor. “Our goal is to create a multi-disciplinary forum for novel ideas that can inform our current understanding of pediatric obesity.”
