Nutrition & Metabolism
Published/Hosted by BioMed Central.
Nutrition & Metabolism is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal focused on the integration of nutrition, exercise physiology, clinical investigations, and molecular and cellular biochemistry of metabolism. The areas of interest of Nutrition & Metabolism encompass studies in obesity, diabetes, lipidemias, metabolic syndrome and exercise physiology that have an underlying basis in metabolism. Likewise, we seek submission of manuscripts on the biochemistry of metabolism, cell signaling, molecular and cellular biology of nutrients, nutrient gene interactions and other areas that have implications for human nutrition and medicine. Current, but not exclusive, interests are metabolic effects of diet composition, interactions of macronutrients, effect of nutrients on gene expression, metabolic control and compartment models, nutritional effect of hormones, and genomic analysis of dietary phenomena. Recent events that provide the rationale for Nutrition & Metabolism are 1) awareness of an epidemic of obesity, diabetes, lipidemias and other related diseases, 2) the sudden increase in popularity of diets, such as low carbohydrate diets, to achieve weight loss, and 3) a renewed interest in intermediary metabolism accompanied by the development of new tools and techniques for genomic and metabolic analysis. With the considerable activity shown in these areas, rapid dissemination of new information is clearly valuable. Whereas articles that appear in existing journals discuss intermediary metabolism in a nutritional context, there is a need for unique and explicit focus for this discipline.
