Nutritional Epidemiology publishes peer-reviewed papers covering all aspects of nutrition in humans and on the role of nutrition in disease prevention and the preservation of human health and well-being. This includes dietary intervention, observational and epidemiological studies; ex vivo or animal studies targeted at establishing mechanism of action or safety of food and dietary ingredients, might be considered.
During the last decades public, scientific and political awareness raised about the strict association between human nutrition and health, highlighting the key role of “optimal” nutrition as tip of the balance between well-being and disease. In this view, it is of paramount importance strengthening human research in order to provide robust dietary recommendations to reduce the burden of disease.
Nutritional Epidemiology publishes peer-reviewed papers covering all aspects of nutrition in humans and on the role of nutrition in disease prevention and the preservation of human health and well-being. This includes dietary intervention, observational and epidemiological studies; ex vivo or animal studies targeted at establishing mechanism of action or safety of food and dietary ingredients, might be considered. Our motivation is to generate research and discussion with the aim to unravel major concerns and doubts and to foster innovative developments of the field.

All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Nutritional Epidemiology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Nutritional Epidemiology 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.
