About Journal

The Review of Diabetic StudiesThe Review of Diabetic Studies (RDS) is a very carefully edited journal, with each paper provided with a scientific and linguistic expert throughout the entire reviewing and publication process to serve the author and realize the optimal result for the publication of the paper. The reviewing and proof preparation processes are supervised by the Editor, who personally read and carefully edit any paper published before a final language correction is carried out by a professional, English native-speaking linguist.

The Editors attach importance (1) to the way of presentation of the data and information, which should be substantiated, balanced, and novel, and (2) to the selection of topics to address the most burning questions in diabetes research. As the journal and the publisher are totally dedicated to scientific and charitable interests and are not afflicted with any commercial interests (in contrast to most other journals), the journal's only goal is the progress in science, which is reflected in the carefully editorial work and the huge effort spent by the Editorial Team in order to create excellence and impact-capturing reference in scientific publishing. The Editors wish to increases attention to unresolved issues that are regarded as most important in scientific progress and clinical translation of therapies aimed at both improving diabetes management and an ultimate cure. The RDS Editorial Board comprises a group of leading experts from the different fields of research into diabetes; they are closely collaborating to identify the most relevant topics and to organize Paper Series Projects addressing these topics.

The RDS supports and encourages research in biomedical diabetes-related science including areas such as endocrinology, immunology, epidemiology, genetics, cell-based research, developmental research, bioengineering, and disease management. The journal publishes original manuscripts on laboratory research, clinical and empirical studies, case and conference reports as well as review and theoretical articles and offers an open forum for immediate discussion of recent advancements by letters and comments.
