FOR AUTHORS: Childhood Obesity and Nutrition is an open access Journal. For all manuscripts submitted in 2016, the introductory article processing charge (APC) will be $750, discounted from the regular fee of $1500.
We seek original research papers, comprehensive narrative reviews with a specific clinical focus, commentaries, case reports, and other types of articles (Please check with editor). Areas of focus for the journal include, but are not limited to:
Advances in pediatric nutrition, nutrition education, nutrition practice, and nutrition public policy.
Interventions designed to promote healthier lifestyles, healthier weights, or positive metabolic changes among children and adolescents.
Descriptive and observational studies of physiological, psychological, metabolic, social, and related aspects of overweight and obesity among children.
We are especially interested in health services research papers related to nutrition and obesity among children. We are also very interested in papers which describe the impact of public policies designed to improve the nutrition profiles and weight status of children.
As our scope is broad we invite papers from a wide range of disciplines including nutrition, epidemiology, education, psychology, nursing, primary care and specialty care medicine, public policy, etc. Articles should be written in a way that is interesting and easy to understand for a broad audience from the disciplines listed above.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Childhood Obesity and Nutrition has deliberately adopted a broad scope of publication, as the field is changing rapidly. Furthermore, many disciplines are contributing to new scientific knowledge in the areas of pediatric nutrition, overweight, and obesity, and obesity-related co-morbidities.
