Publishing Journal Supplements in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
Symposia or workshop articles may be published as supplements to the AJCN and are funded by their sponsors. The AJCN welcomes queries about the publication of supplements. The AJCN uses a 2-part acceptance process for supplements. The first step involves editorial acceptance of the topic and content as provided by the symposium organizer; please send the following material to Darren Early (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration by the AJCN Editorial Office: title, location, and date of the meeting; the names and affiliations of potential guest editors; the sponsor(s) of the meeting; the sponsor(s) of the publication; and the agenda/program from the meeting along with the names of the speakers. The second step involves anonymous peer review of the individual articles. To be considered for publication, supplement articles must be received within 3 mo of each symposium or workshop. Each manuscript should not exceed 15 text pages, exclusive of tables, figures, and references; must adhere to AJCN style and format; and will be reviewed according to the same scientific standards used to evaluate original research articles.
