Obesity, Weight-related Research Scholarly Journals

The following are from the National Library of Medicine's catalog. Many of these journals are peer-reviewed and therefore are indexed in PubMed.  Some of these journals are subscription based and cost money to actually read an article and I can only you point you to the journal on the Publisher's site.  All is not lost:  You can always go to your Public Library.  You would be surprised at how much resource-sharing is going on, making it affordable for public libraries (and you) to gain access to Databases that carry some of these journals.  I am amazed that even my own Public Library has Business Database package that some small academic institutions can no longer afford.  Anyway, with your library account you can tap into some of these databases from home, or on their wireless if you bring in a tablet or laptop.  If they do not have access, they will get the article for you via Interlibrary Loan for a nominal fee.  If all else fails, please feel free to contact me and I will point you in a good direction---this is what I do all day long. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!!!
