Announcing the launch of In Review

Nutrition & Metabolism, 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 

Presubmission inquiries

Please use the 'Contact our support team' link in SNAPP for all pre-submission inquiries rather than the editors' email addresses. The emails sent via the system will be responded to in a timely manner. 

Featured collection: Special issue on Precision Nutrition

Nutrition & Metabolism has published a special issue on Precision Nutrition in 2020. Co-guest-edited by Dr Martha Field and Dr Anna Thalacker-Mercer from University of Cornell in the USA, the special issue is dedicated to improving our knowledge in precision nutrition.

Aims and scope

Nutrition & Metabolism publishes studies with a clear focus on nutrition and metabolism with applications ranging from nutrition needs, exercise physiology, clinical and population studies, as well as the underlying mechanisms in these aspects.

The areas of interest for Nutrition & Metabolism encompass studies in molecular nutrition in the context of obesity, diabetes, lipedemias, metabolic syndrome and exercise physiology. Manuscripts related to molecular, cellular and human metabolism, nutrient sensing and nutrient–gene interactions are also in interest, as are submissions that have employed new and innovative strategies like metabolomics/lipidomics or other omics-based biomarkers to predict nutritional status and metabolic diseases.

Editor's profile

New Content ItemProfessor Mario Siervo, Editor-in-Chief
Prof Siervo is currently a Professor of Human Nutrition and Physiology at Curtin University, Perth, Australia. Prof Siervo is a clinical academic specialized in clinical nutrition and metabolic medicine. He completed his medical degree and clinical training at the University of Naples "Federico II". He obtained an MSc in Public Health Nutrition from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and completed his PhD in Human Nutrition and Physiology at the University of Cambridge. He has worked in prestigious research institutions in England (MRC Human Nutrition Research in Cambridge, Human Nutrition Research Centre in Newcastle and Metabolic Physiology group at the University of Nottingham) and in the USA (National Institutes of Health). He has been awarded prestigious prices for his contribution to nutrition research by the Italian Nutrition Society (2008), British Nutrition Foundation (2013) and by the UK Nutrition Society (Julie Wallace Award 2017 and the 2021 Silver Medal for Excellence in Nutrition Research).

Prof Siervo has published more than 220 publications, contributed to three book chapters and co-edited two books. He is the recipient as PI and Co-PI of several grants from MRC, NIHR and Alzheimer's Research UK. His current research interests include the 1) definition of sarcopenic obesity as a diagnostic phenotype and evaluation of its association with disease risk and 2) investigation of the role of nutritional factors, such as inorganic nitrate, vitamin C or salt consumption, to modify nitric oxide production and test effects on vascular, metabolic and cognitive functions in humans.
