Journal of Photonic Materials and Technology

354The subject area of the Journal of Photonic Materials and Technology (JMPT) will be the progress in the studies of advanced photonic materials as well as of engineering and technology of photonic integrated circuits. Such circuits find their primary application in the field of fiber-optic communication; they also look promising for biomedical and photonic computations. The journal shall provide an open access platform for theoretical and experimental peer-reviewed articles, thus contributing to dissemination of the knowledge of phenomena pertaining to physics of light-matter coupling and electromagnetically induced transparency. It will also publish articles devoted to electromagnetic excitations in low-dimensional and non-ideal structures.

Online Journal Publishing Helps Encourage Upcoming Researchers

c89abda55b33cfde36479c858f19c298High rate of distributions in the online journal is an awesome type of consolation for understudies and youthful researchers. At the point when individuals do any research exercises, they need these to be distributed in papers and journals, from where their work can be acknowledged. Exclusive expectation journals are having loads of rivalries and they once in a while locate the up and coming researchers with adequate foundations to get their works distributed. Thus, without the absence of fitting bolster, it is troublesome for new understudies to have their work in the journals. Be that as it may, these days, the pattern is improving as a result of the substantial quantities of works, being distributed in journals which are open access.

Getting their papers distributed in worldwide academic journals is likewise another accomplishment for youthful researchers. They look for these journals as a result of the huge scale introduction of their work in universal groups. Is this a work of acknowledge, as well as there will be legitimate reviews of the papers being submitted for distributed. This implies that the youthful researchers and understudies have the capacity to make a stride forward. Web distributed houses are these days getting included in the work being finished by the more up to date understudies, who are likely beginning in the field of distributed. It is a joy for them and a type of credit when worldwide journals admire their work and distribute them.

Thus, the vast majority of the new researchers are going out to put a few endeavors in their written academic journal articles work and sending them for review to be distributed in worldwide journals. Since the idea of open access journals is expanding in the advanced days, an electronic journal is coming up and requesting that numerous youthful researchers broaden their papers.

It is imperative for individuals to send their attempts to distinctive journals, to get the work distributed in diverse journals. At the point when various these are drawn nearer, there are high risks that a decent journal will set up the work. For the researchers, this is an empowering pattern. Since the online types of journals are turning out in the web, the call for paper is being met with enormous positive reaction.

More researchers and researchers are going for the online journal, so that their work is distributed. When it goes to the eyes of the global review sheets and is distributed, it denotes an accomplishment. All the while, numerous worldwide stalwarts in the specific field have the capacity to see these works and get legitimate reviews. When they admire these researches, they are in a roundabout way prompting better quality work to be displayed before the global group. Numerous journals are getting up in the online configuration on the grounds that these are open get to and can be seen by numerous individuals. This is continuously prompting a solid pattern where more work gets distributed and individuals have the capacity to get various productions. For them, such a pattern is empowering and for the journals, these are likewise profiting.

Abstract
Background: Obesity is a chronic disease which contributes to morbidity and mortality from non-communicable diseases. Urbanization, western lifestyles and demographic transition contribute to this problem in Nigeria. Primary care physicians should be active in early detection, and motivating obese people for life style change. Motivation is an important first step towards any action or behaviour change and clinicians can assess and enhance motivation to change before extensive damage is done to health, relationships, reputation, or self-image. Aims: To determine pattern and predictive factors for readiness to change among literate obese patients in primary care. Methods and Materials: A cross-sectional study was conducted between July and October 2012, among literate obese patients in the outpatient department of an urban hospital. Obese patients were identified by clinical examination, and readiness to change was measured with the University of Rhode Island Change Assessment (URICA) score. Results: Prevalence of obesity was 17.43%. Most of the subjects were married (83.8%), female (76.5%) had tertiary education (64.7%) and from professional cadre (54.4%). Mean age was 43.5±9.2. Majority (69.1%) felt that they were motivated (self- perception) to lose weight, but most (58%) were not confident that they could lose weight (self-efficacy). Based on the URICA score, most (73.5%)of the literate obese patients were contemplators. There were no significant predictors of the stage of change. Conclusion: Obesity is common among literate patients in the outpatient setting. The mean URICA score was 8.68±1.68, and most were in contemplation stage.
