The European Journal of Nutrition and Food Safety (ISSN: 2347-5641) will initially have 4 issues per year. Each issue will be a running issue and all officially accepted manuscripts will be immediately published online. State-of-the-art running issue concept gives authors the benefit of 'Zero Waiting Time' for the officially accepted manuscripts to be published. We recommend to follow ICMJE Recommendations.
Clinical studies that report scientific mechanisms, effects, biomarkers, and safety of dietary interventions are welcome. EJNFS also invites .epidemiological studies relevant to nutrition, and innovative investigations (including the use of biomarkers) of nutritional questions that employ established, traditional approaches as well as epigenetic, nutrigenomic, metabolomic and proteomic approaches. Reviews of the literature in the above areas are also welcome.

Grey literature government reports
A special section of EJNFS will be dedicated to publication of (extended) abstracts of “grey literature government reports”. Many governmental research institutes in Europe/world are confronted with the problem that their very good scientific reports are produced directly for governmental sponsors. Results are typically presented in reports, which are published on an institute’s website only. However, scientists like to publish their work in the scientific arena, albeit that there may be little, if any, funding to support writing of the results in a scientific paper. Whereas the reports may be of very high scientific quality, they are not readily disseminated into the scientific world because they are not identified by normal literature attending systems. This then leads to very good scientific work being unnoticed by a wider audience, possible re-duplication of the work in other countries, a loss of resources, and hence to a slower progression of science. Therefore, EJNFS offers to publish good governmental reports in this peer-reviewed scientific journal via an abstract of the report. As such, EJNFS will publish (extended) abstracts of governmental reports (in English language only following a regular peer review system. Scientific excellence, open access and English language are the only prerequisites. Upon scientific acceptance of the work, the extended abstract will contain the title of the work, the authors as well as a hyperlink to the original full scientific report. In this way the scientific reports will be opened to a worldwide scientific audience and authoring scientists will get the results of their work disseminated in the scientific arena.
Abstracts of scientific meetings in nutrition and food safety
Abstracts of oral presentations and posters in the area of nutrition and food safety presented at scientific meetings can be published in discussion with the Editor/associate editors. Standardised abstracts (prepared in accordance with journal guidelines) need to be in English language and will be peer-reviewed prior to publication. It is recommended to contact the editor before submitting abstracts of a scientific meeting.
This international journal has no connection with any scholarly society or association or any specific geographic location or any country (like USA, UK, Germany, etc). This is an independent journal run by SCIENCEDOMAIN international. Legal contact address of editorial office and other offices are available in this link.
