Open for submissions: Journal of Metabolic Health
AOSIS is proud to announce that the Journal of Metabolic Health (JMH) is open for submissions, and we invite authors to submit their latest research manuscripts for consideration. JMH (previously the Journal of Insulin Resistance) is a peer-reviewed, clinically oriented open access journal covering advances in metabolic health and related disorders. The journal focuses on pathophysiology, prevention, management, and advancing therapy for different patient populations with metabolic health issues, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other conditions associated with insulin resistance and inflammation.

AOSIS launched the Journal (as the Journal of Insulin Resistance) in 2015, following a unique conference that was held in Cape Town in 2015, to discuss the global obesity epidemic and its co-morbidity of lifestyle diseases. The invitation to the conference stated: ‘The world is facing a tsunami of lifestyle-related chronic diseases that will cost our global economy $47 trillion over the next twenty years. These diseases are eminently preventable and treatable, and yet currently, every year, they kill twice as many people around the world as infectious diseases do’.
It became clear that the scientific field of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinaemia, and the therapeutic application of carbohydrate-reduction was emerging and needed to become a key area for research, academic discourse, and education of health professionals. Although there were many journals focusing on nutrition, obesity, and endocrinology they are guided by the conventional nutrition underpinnings. It was concluded that a journal was much needed to focus on this new paradigm, and so, the Journal of Insulin Resistance was established.
In 2023, a collaboration was established between the Journal of Insulin Resistance and the Society for Metabolic Health Practitioners (The SMHP™), an organisation founded in 2020. The SMHP™ represents researchers and practitioners working to improve metabolic health around the world through education, training, and support of evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle approaches, including carbohydrate-reduction. It was recognised that the journal and The SMHP™ shared many synergies, with strong alignment in their philosophies with regards direction and vision, which extended beyond insulin resistance. It was decided that the Journal of Insulin Resistance become the official journal of The SMHP™ and expand its scope from an insulin resistance focus to the broader and more holistic field of metabolic health. To further align these two entities, the journal underwent a name change to reflect the collaboration and thereafter became known as the Journal of Metabolic Health.
