Call for papers Journal of Obesity: Social networks and obesity; manuscript due: March 1, 2013.

About: Social networks have been shown to impact weight and associated behaviors. Obesity and weight loss have both been found to cluster in social networks, and longitudinal data show that socially connected individuals become increasingly similar in weight status over time. Moreover, individuals have been shown to model the eating and activity behavior of their social ties. Given this emerging evidence that weight status, eating, and activity are affected by social ties, more work is needed to (a) elucidate the mechanisms by which social networks impact weight and related behaviors and (b) develop and test intervention paradigms that harness the impact of social ties to promote weight control.
