About the Journals

Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice

Official journal of the International Diabetes Federation


Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice is an international journal for healthcare providers and clinical researchers.

Publishing high-quality original articles and expert reviews in diabetes and connected areas, the journal is a platform for sharing knowledge and discussing topics related to clinical research and patient care. 

The journal aims to focus attention on key areas of interest at this important time for diabetes research. Topics covered include translational science, genetics, immunology, nutrition, psychosocial research, epidemiology, prevention, socio-economic research, complications, new treatments, technologies, and therapy. 

Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice is the official journal of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), an umbrella organization of over 230 diabetes associations worldwide. Representing the interests of the growing number of people with diabetes and those at risk, the IDF has been leading the global diabetes community since 1950.

Presenting research articles for review and publication is simple, with submission via the Elsevier Editorial System. Once published, Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice articles are included in major abstracting and indexing services including: BIOSIS, Elsevier BIOBASE, Chemical Abstracts, Current Contents, MEDLINE®, Diabetes Contents, EMBASE, Research Information Systems, and Scopus.

Benefits for published authors include a free service called Audioslides. These short, webcast-style presentations are displayed next to published articles on ScienceDirect, and are free to view. Audioslides let authors explain research in their own words, and the content can be embedded in authors’ websites and shared via social media.

A great way to build presentation skills, Audioslides can aid communication and help researchers share valuable work more effectively.
