The Journal of Nutrition

Edited by Teresa A. Davis

The Journal of Nutrition (JN/J Nutr) publishes peer-reviewed original research papers covering all aspects of experimental nutrition in humans and other animal species; special articles such as reviews and biographies of prominent nutrition scientists; and issues, opinions, and commentaries on controversial issues in nutrition. Supplements are frequently published to provide extended discussion of topics of special interest.

Teresa A. Davis, Ph.D. is Editor-in-Chief of JN. With the assistance and recommendation of Associate Editors (selected for their expertise in specific nutrition disciplines), the Editor-in-Chief accepts or rejects submitted manuscripts. Submitted manuscripts must comply with JN's Instructions for Authors.

The premier journal in its field, JN has been in circulation since 1928. JN is an official monthly publication of the American Society for Nutrition (ASN). Membership in ASN includes a subscription to the online version of JN. JN publishes original research reported by authors in over 50 countries and is distributed worldwide to more than 1000 institutions, in addition to personal subscribers and ASN members. To provide expert evaluation of the various segments of the broad spectrum of nutrition research, the editorial office is assisted by scientists who serve as Associate Editors, editorial board members, and ad hoc reviewers chosen for their nutritional science expertise. They provide constructive evaluation and fair and rapid editorial processing. The frequency of citations to articles published in JN by scientists, clinicians, and others increases each year.

JN focuses on the review of manuscripts that address human, animal, cellular, and molecular nutrition. JN is especially interested in publishing manuscripts that advance the understanding of nutritional mechanisms in human populations, in animals, in relevant model organisms, in appropriate primary cells or cell culture models, and/or at the molecular level. Manuscripts addressing interactions of nutrition with genetics, physiological regulation, health outcomes, and behavioral outcomes are generally well suited for review by JN. Because the pages that can be published annually are limited, suitability is an important consideration in the review process. To facilitate review, the Editor-in-Chief previews all submitted manuscripts and independently or in consultation with an Associate Editor, decides if a manuscript is appropriate for review by members of JN's editorial board and/or ad hoc reviewers. Manuscripts outside of the scope of JN are returned without the delay of a full review, generally within a week of submission. Authors may contact the Editor-in-Chief in advance to inquire about the potential suitability of their research topic for review.

Manuscript submissions and inquiries are encouraged. Manuscript style and formatting are described in the "Instructions to Authors" under "Publish". Manuscript submissions should be made using JN online manuscript submission system. Direct inquiries to
