Scope Food & Nutrition Research is a non-profit, open access, peer-reviewed journal that presents scientific research in various fields within human nutrition. The purpose of Food & Nutrition Research is to publish original research studies directly relevant to human nutrition. Food & Nutrition Research encompasses the full spectrum of nutritional science, including public health nutrition, nutritional epidemiology and clinical nutrition. Food & Nutrition Research welcomes original papers, reviews and commentaries. Suggestions for special issues covering selected topics may be considered. Food & Nutrition Research is devoted to publish manuscripts that advance the knowledge of human nutrition beyond state-of-the-art. Animal, cell and molecular studies will only be considered if they are clearly relevant to scientific questions related to human nutrition. This could be by contributing to mechanistic explanations for associations between diet and health identified in clinical or epidemiological human nutritional studies. Manuscripts describing research in food chemistry (such as the chemical composition and analysis of foods), including exotic plants, extracts and ingredients, are generally not considered eligible unless the results have a clear impact on human nutrition and/or human health. The focus of all manuscripts submitted to Food & Nutrition Research should be to increase knowledge in human nutritional science. Authors may contact the Editor-in-Chief in advance to inquire about whether their research topic is suitable for consideration by Food & Nutrition Research.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
