​"There exists a critical need for a publication that would continuously review the current literature in nutrition and furnish brief reports on original papers which appear to have substantial significance. These were to indicate whether or not the claims made were supported by adequate evidence."

Charles Glen King, PhD
Founder of Nutrition Reviews

Mission and History
Nutrition Reviews was founded in 1942 in response to a recognized need for expert analysis and synthesis of the vast amounts of nutrition science research being generated worldwide. Today, that need is greater still and Nutrition Reviews continues to serve it with the same goal in mind: To help nutrition scientists, scholars, and practitioners stay abreast of significant developments in the field through concise and meaningful reports prepared with objectivity and a critical focus.

Scope and Audience
Nutrition Reviews is a highly cited, monthly, international, peer-reviewed journal that specializes in the publication of authoritative and critical literature reviews on current and emerging topics in nutrition science, food science, clinical nutrition, and nutrition policy. Readers of Nutrition Reviews include nutrition scientists, biomedical researchers, clinical and dietetic practitioners, and advanced students of nutrition.

Articles selected for publication will be consistent with the journal’s mission and should clearly outline both the biological and practical nutritional implications of a timely topic, so the reader obtains a clear understanding of both the topic’s nature and its relevance. The journal does not publish primary research. There is no charge for submission.
