Mission and Scope of the IJED
IJED’s mission is to advance the scientific knowledge needed for understanding, treating, and preventing eating disorders. The journal achieves its mission by publishing rigorously evaluated, high-quality manuscripts for distribution through print and electronic platforms to an international readership of health professionals, scientists, and advocates.
Accordingly, the IJED publishes state-of-the-art original scientific research and scholarly articles on theory, methodology, etiology, clinical practice, and policy related to eating disorders, as well as articles that facilitate scholarly critique and discussion of science and practice in the field. Theoretical and empirical work on obesity or healthy eating falls within the journal’s scope inasmuch as it facilitates the advancement of efforts to describe and understand, prevent, or treat eating disorders.
