The Journal of Nutrition

Published since 1928, The Journal of Nutrition (JN) was the first scientific journal created solely for publication of nutrition research. Contents include peer-reviewed research reports on all aspects of experimental nutrition, critical reviews, commentaries, and symposium and workshop proceedings.

Periodically, supplements to JN are published, and these contain proceedings from internationally recognized conferences on clinical nutrition. Supplements are included in the subscription rate and are also available for purchase individually. Refer to our list of available supplements.

Beginning with the January 2023 issues, authors will no longer pay page or color figure charges to publish in JN.
