The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to authors and editors who write, review, and publish manuscripts focusing on bariatric and metabolic surgery. In addition to providing consistency within the field of bariatric and metabolic surgery, standardized outcome reporting will provide a uniform method of communicating our findings throughout the medical literature.
