Call for Papers: Diabetes and Eating Disorders – a complex co-morbidity
Recent clinical epidemiologic studies have identified a high co-occurrence rate of diabetes and eating disorders with consequent increased morbidity - revealing poor diabetes control as a major contributing factor for people with this comorbidity.
In this joint thematic series by Journal of Eating Disorders and Clinical Diabetes and Endocrinology, we will consider research exploring all aspects of both Type I and Type II diabetes and eating disorders - the editors especially welcome submissions that address patient management. Submissions close 1 May 2018.

Call for Papers: Raising the bar in the treatment of over-exercise in people with AN
Exercise is the neglected “Cinderella” of eating disorder phenomenology but is an important determinant of outcomes and its restriction in treatments often strongly resisted and poorly understood. There is a need for more research to improve understanding of its assessment and treatment. This call is for papers on all aspects of compulsive exercise in eating disorders and especially those that address its management.
