The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (JAND) is the official research publication of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Its purpose, expressed in its mission statement, is to be “the premier peer-reviewed journal in the field of food, nutrition, and dietetics” and to embody the mission of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. JAND is published in both print and electronic formats and publishes Articles in Press (articles posted on JAND’s website prior to print publication).
JAND publishes manuscripts that advance knowledge across a wide range of research and practice issues in nutrition and dietetics. Evidence-based contributions of original research, focused meta-analyses of cohort and randomized clinical trials, systematic reviews, and innovative research applications are welcome. Topics include foods and nutrients and their implications in health and disease; dietary patterns and dietary interventions; nutritional science, nutrigenomics, and medical nutrition therapy; translational research; dietetics practice and public health; nutrition epidemiology and bio-statistical applications in nutrition research; food science and biotechnology; foodservice systems; leadership and management in food and nutrition systems and application to public policy; and medical nutrition and dietetics education. International contributions on global topics of nutrition interest are also welcome, providing there is relevance to the largely US readership and findings are placed within that context. Major trends that impact research and practice in the fields of food, nutrition, and dietetics may also be considered if placed in appropriate contexts for JAND’s readership (eg, population demographic transitions, environmental trends, health care advancements).
JAND accepts unsolicited manuscripts in nine peer-reviewed categories that comprise either the research or practice sections. Research categories are: Research Paper, Research Brief, Systematic Review, Narrative Review, Case Study, Editorial, and Commentary. Practice categories are: Professional Practice and Letters to the Editor.
