Food & Nutrition Research is a non-profit, open access, peer-reviewed journal that presents scientific research in various fields within human nutrition. The purpose of Food & Nutrition Research is to publish original research studies directly relevant to human nutrition. Food & Nutrition Research encompasses the full spectrum of nutritional science, including public health nutrition, nutritional epidemiology and clinical nutrition. Food & Nutrition Research welcomes original papers, reviews and commentaries. Suggestions for special issues covering selected topics may be considered. Food & Nutrition Research is devoted to publish manuscripts that advance the knowledge of human nutrition beyond state-of-the-art. Animal, cell and molecular studies will only be considered if they are clearly relevant to scientific questions related to human nutrition. This could be by contributing to mechanistic explanations for associations between diet and health identified in clinical or epidemiological human nutritional studies. Manuscripts describing research in food chemistry (such as the chemical composition and analysis of foods), including exotic plants, extracts and ingredients, are generally not considered eligible unless the results have a clear impact on human nutrition and/or human health. The focus of all manuscripts submitted to Food & Nutrition Research should be to increase knowledge in human nutritional science. Authors may contact the Editor-in-Chief in advance to inquire about whether their research topic is suitable for consideration by Food & Nutrition Research.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
