The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) expanded its publications program in 2017 with the publication of Current Developments in Nutrition (CDN). CDN is a new open access, multidisciplinary nutrition science journal. Dr. Jack Odle, a distinguished faculty member at North Carolina State University and an active and long-standing ASN member, has been appointed as the first editor of CDN.
Current Developments in Nutrition expands the scope of nutrition research published by ASN, ranging from deep, mechanistic studies at molecular/biochemical and cellular levels to whole-body metabolism, clinical health, fitness, and population health. And publishing articles in areas of emerging research including food and nutrition policy, agricultural and food systems, nutrition education, dietary assessment, and animal nutrition among others.
Authors who publish their research in Current Developments in Nutrition will benefit from rapid editorial decisions, swift publication, and immediate availability to the global scientific community. CDN will offer a simplified submission process, one-revision peer review, and manuscript transfer options. CDN began accepting manuscript submissions in late 2016, and published its first articles online in January 2017.
