Member Benefits

Expand Your Knowledge

Members of ASN receive free online access to The Journal of Nutrition (JN), The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN),  Advances in Nutrition (AN), and Current Developments in Nutrition (CDN). AJCN, published since 1952, is the highest ranked peer-reviewed journal in nutrition and dietetics and publishes basic and clinical studies relevant to human nutrition. JN, published monthly since 1928, carries original, peer-reviewed research in key areas of nutrition. Both journals are widely read and publish studies from over 40 countries. Advances in Nutrition responds to the growing demand for a prestigious, high-profile publication that gathers, synthesizes, and explains the current state of knowledge in all facets of the field.

Members also receive Nutrition Notes, a monthly newsletter which provides news of member activities, meetings, course offerings, grant opportunities, student news and job opportunities; and the ASN Health and Nutrition Policy Newsletter, twice a month including the latest Congressional Action, Funding Opportunities, and more.

Additionally, Student and Early Career members can get free online access to Nutrition Today.
