Announcing the launch of In Review
Nutrition Journal, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:
- Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
- Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
- Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received

Featured article: Dietary inflammatory index and cardiovascular disease risk in Hispanic women from the Women’s Health Initiative
Chronic inflammation plays a key role in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease (CVD), in the progression of atherosclerosis plaques, and the modulation of endothelial function. It is well known that diet contributes to the regulation of chronic inflammation through the modulation of the levels of inflammatory markers, as well as serum lipids and glucose. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between the dietary inflammatory index (DII®) and incident cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Hispanic women from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), and to determine if body mass index (BMI) interacted with the DII scores.
Special issue on sex and gender differences
Nutrition Journal has published a special issue on sex and gender differences on dietary intake and other dietary behaviors across the life course. The special issue is guest-edited by Professor Clare Collins from the University of Newcastle in Australia.
Special issue on food, health, and environmental sustainability
The special issue is co-guest-edited by Dr. Sharon Kirkpatrick at University of Waterloo in Canada and Dr. Camille Lassale at Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute (IMIM) in Spain.
Aims and scope
Nutrition Journal publishes novel surveillance, epidemiologic, and intervention research that sheds light on i) influences (e.g., familial, environmental) on eating patterns; ii) associations between eating patterns and health, and iii) strategies to improve eating patterns among populations. The journal also welcomes manuscripts reporting on the psychometric properties (e.g., validity, reliability) and feasibility of methods (e.g., for assessing dietary intake) for human nutrition research. In addition, study protocols for controlled trials and cohort studies, with an emphasis on methods for assessing dietary exposures and outcomes as well as intervention components, will be considered. The journal does not consider animal studies.
Meet the Co-Editors-in-Chief
Xiang Gao, MD, PhD, Co-Editor-in-Chief
Professor and Chair, Department of Nutrition and Food Hygiene, Fudan University School of Public Health
Dr Gao is the Professor and Chair of Department of Nutrition and Food Hygiene , Fudan University since 2022. Formerly, he was Assistant Professor (2010-2014) at Harvard Medical School, Associate Professor (2014-2020) and Full Professor (2020-2022) at the Penn State University. His research interests include nutritional epidemiology, neurological diseases (eg, Parkinson disease, cognitive function, and sleep disorders), and global health. He has served as the Principal Investigator of several NIH-funded R01/R21/R03 projects since 2009. He has published more than 300 articles in peer-reviewed journals and served on several national committees, including Institute of Medicine, American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and Parkinson Study Group.
Dr. Gao won the Irwin H. Rosenberg Pre-doctoral Award from the Jean Mayor USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts(2006), the Wayne A. Hening Sleep Medicine Investigator Award from the American Academy of Neurology (2011), the Leadership/Expertise Alumni Award from the Tufts Nutrition School (2012), and the Samuel Fomon Young Physician Investigator Award from American Society for Nutrition(2015). He was selected into the Tufts Honorable Alumni Registry in 2015.
Dr. Gao received his M.S. in Epidemiology from Peking Union Medical College and his M.D. from Shanghai Second Medical University. He received his Ph.D. in nutritional epidemiology from Tufts University.
Qi Sun, MD, Sc.D., Co-Editor-in-Chief
Associate Professor of Medicine in Channing Division of Network Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School
Dr. Qi Sun is Associate Professor of Medicine in Channing Division of Network Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He is also Associate Professor in the Departments of Nutrition and Epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Sun’s primary research interests include identifying and examining biomedical risk factors, particularly dietary biomarkers, in relation to type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease through epidemiological investigations. His research is primarily based on several large-scale cohort studies including the Nurses’ Health Studies and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. Dr. Sun is also interested in understanding the role of environmental pollutants, such as perfluoroalkyl substances and legacy persistent organic pollutants, in the etiology of weight change and type 2 diabetes. In the era of precision nutrition, Dr. Sun develops a new research interest of understanding the role of microbiome in mediating and modulating diet-health associations. Dr. Sun is currently leading a few NIH-funded projects that focus on food biomarker discovery and validation, diet-microbiome-health inter-relationships, as well as associations between obesogens and weight change in human populations.
