BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health is a new journal co-owned by NNEdPro and the BMJ Group, launched at our 4th International Summit in Cambridge on 20th July 2018. The journal is dedicated to publishing high quality, peer reviewed articles that focus on diet, exercise and healthcare technology on health and wellbeing.
Speaking on the journal launch, NNEdPro Founding Chair and Executive Director, Prof. Sumantra Ray, says: “The creation of this landmark journal – BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health – comes at a pivotal time, particularly as the NNEdPro Global Centre for Nutrition and Health have been working for the past decade to strengthen the translation potential of nutrition science for best practice. This journal will give nutrition and public health researchers the opportunity to ensure that a dynamic evidence base reaches both policy makers and practitioners. This will give patients and the wider public, the best possible chance of receiving quality-assured nutritional solutions to prevent and manage disease, as well as to improve health outcomes.”
Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Martin Kohlmeier, says the journal “will value contributions that advance practical and evidence-supported nutrition solutions for urgent health challenges. We want to hear what would be most useful for those that can translate new knowledge into better health for their communities. This will help to then engage with researchers and seek high-quality contributions responsive to the recognised priorities. We will not shy away from difficult topics, but will work hard to avoid the fad of the day.”
BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health is now accepting submissions. Please visit https://nutrition.bmj.com/ for more information and sign up to the journal mailing list for all future updates.
