An International Publication for Nutrition to Advance Food and Life Science Research

The mission of Nutrition Research is to serve as the premier journal for the global communication of nutrition sciences research. Our primary goal is to publish research across the broad field of nutrition sciences that advances human health and promotes clinical applications through a comprehensive understanding of dietary patterns, foods, nutrients, and bioactive food components. This understanding includes exploring diet-related interactions with environmental exposures, human behavior, genetics, and underlying health status.

Nutrition Research aims to contribute to the advancement of fundamental knowledge and facilitate research translation in support of public health. We achieve this by publishing nutrition sciences research that establishes mechanisms and demonstrates the efficacy or detriment of dietary exposures and interventions. We welcome studies conducted in humans, populations, and cellular and animal models, particularly those related to biomolecular nutrition, precision nutrition, (multi)omic workflows, nutrition interventions, randomized controlled trials, and novel methodological approaches and techniques that advance the nutrition sciences field. Furthermore, Nutrition Research is committed to promoting diversity, equity, inclusivity, and justice in the field through the dedicated efforts of its globally diverse editorial board. We also actively encourage the submission of research from all geographic regions and topics addressing health inequities and improvements in the health of vulnerable and/or underrepresented populations.

Nutrition Research publishes peer-reviewed research and articles related to all aspects of nutrition sciences that are relevant to the health of humans and populations. We welcome the following types of submissions:

Original research articles presenting hypothesis-driven studies performed in humans, or in animal models or cellular systems with physiological relevance to humans.

Narrative and systematic reviews and meta-analyses focusing on fundamental and applied nutrition.

Research methodology and study design of human clinical trials.

Short communications.

Editorials and opinions on emerging or controversial nutrition and dietary issues.



Since 2010 Nutrition Research has sponsored the David Kritchevsky Graduate Student Award with support provided by Elsevier. This prestigious award recognizes outstanding articles published in Nutrition Research by graduate and professional students. Annually, two awards of $1000 (USD) each are presented to these early-career scientists.
