World-class research. Ultimate impact.

Nutrition and Metabolism aims to to provide a space to explore, characterise and report on how nutrition affects our metabolic health. Our intention is to make active and critical contributions to the science and policy discourses to define more effective and targeted intervention and prevention strategies for chronic metabolic diseases.
Nutrition is a crucial underlying factor in many of the challenges our current world faces, including the epidemic of overweight and obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in an aging population. More insight in how nutrition affects our metabolic health is of crucial importance in defining more effective and targeted intervention and prevention strategies for chronic metabolic diseases.
Nutrition and Metabolism publishes rigorously peer-reviewed studies focused on nutrition and metabolism ranging from early nutrition to nutrition in the elderly, from molecular mechanisms to in vivo human physiology and from nutritional and clinical intervention studies to population studies. Specialty Chief Editor Ellen E Blaak from Maastricht University is supported by an outstanding editorial board of internationally renowned scientists. This multidisciplinary open-access journal section is at the forefront of scientific interchange and dissemination of the clinical and metabolic aspects of nutrition in relation to chronic metabolic diseases and impactful discoveries for scientists and health practitioners from around the globe as well as the public worldwide.
The scope of Nutrition and Metabolism includes studies on molecular nutrition as well as integrative physiology in the context of obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Besides diet, also physical exercise and the interaction between diet and physical activity is a focus area. New and innovative areas and methodologies are of interest, including the field of host-microbe interactions, sex-related differences in metabolism, the timing of food intake, the balance between healthy and sustainable foods as well as personalized nutrition and related -omic based methods to achieve a better insight into the complex interaction between nutrition and human metabolism.

PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Nutrition and Metabolism welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Brief Research Report, Case Report, Clinical Trial, Community Case Study, Conceptual Analysis, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Registered Report, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Nutrition and Metabolism, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Nutrition and Metabolism will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Nutrition.
