Science behind Nutraceuticals

The official ENA journal

Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism is a leading international peer-reviewed journal for sharing information on human nutrition, metabolism and related fields, covering the broad and multidisciplinary nature of science in nutrition and metabolism. As the official journal of the European Nutraceutical Association (ENA) as well as of the International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS), the Federation of European Nutrition Societies (FENS), and the German Nutrition Society (DGE) the journal has a high visibility among both researchers and users of research outputs, including policy makers, across Europe and around the world.
Many articles are relevant to nutrition advisors in their daily practice as well.

The journal focuses on human nutrition and metabolism, including experimental studies and basic science that can inform human nutrition science.
We welcome manuscripts describing observational and intervention studies as well as basic science reports on the topics of foods, diets and dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, functional food, nutrigenomics and genetics related to metabolism, on energy metabolism, macro- and micronutrients including vitamins and minerals, biofunctional compounds, dietetics, obesity, clinical nutrition, social sciences and health economy as related to nutrition and metabolism and nutrition policy. Laboratory-based science may include descriptions of relevant experimental models.
In addition to Original Papers, the journal will publish Review Articles on topical subjects, Systematic Reviews, short Commentaries and Viewpoint articles that may address current controversies, short Meeting Reports, Letters to the Editor, and Announcements/Society News. The journal will also publish Supplements with proceedings from internationally relevant conferences on nutrition and metabolism.
All articles are published electronically ahead of print with the definite citation line. Thus, an article will be available online shortly after the author's approval to print.

Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism is listed in bibliographic services, including Current Contents/Life Sciences, Pubmed/MEDLINE, Excerpta Medica, Biological Abstracts.
