Saudi Arabian Society of Metabolic and Bariatric surgery was founded under the umbrella of Saudi Commission for health specialties (SCFHS) in 2010 G as one of the new societies in Saudi Arabia.

The objectives of the society include: Health education of public, medical education, and development of health professionals in the field of obesity in addition to conduction and dissemination of research.

To achieve some objectives of the society, the board recommended issuing the Saudi Journal of Obesity (SJO) as the official journal of the society. To have high standard journal, the editorial team has been formed of different health professionals with experience in medical journalism and health specialties. SJO signed a memorandum with one of the most popular publisher in the world "Medknow" to be responsible for publishing and distribution the journal. We hope that SJO will be one of the most important sources that help the health-care providers and decision makers to prevent and to treat obesity based on the best medical evidence.
