Elsevier Announces the Launch of NFS Journal – an OA Journal Bridging Nutrition and Food Science

First published articles in NFS Journal now available on ScienceDirect

Amsterdam, May 7, 2015

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of NFS Journal, a new open access journal.

The new NFS Journal is published by Elsevier in cooperation with the Society of Nutrition and Food Science (SNFS), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing together nutrition and food scientists and to advance scientific progress and education in both fields. NFS Journal particularly invites submission of articles that deal with subjects on the interface of nutrition and food research and thus connect both disciplines. The journal also offers a new form of submission: Registered Reports.

“Registered Reports offer pre-registration of the study design, planned experiments, and hypothesis and, if these are deemed interesting and worth publishing by members of the editorial board and outside expert reviewers, researchers will be able to publish their pre-registered studies in the journal irrespective of the outcome of the experiments, as long as the experiments have been performed accurately and data analyses and interpretation are according to the highest scientific standards and follow the pre-registered procedures,” explained Editor-in-Chief of NFS Journal, Professor Jan Frank, Head of the division Biofunctionality and Safety of Food at the Institute of Biological Chemistry and Nutrition at the University of Hohenheim.

“We are thrilled to see our publishing relationship with the Society of Nutrition and Food Science result in the launch of a brand new journal. With it we hope to offer researchers in the field an exciting new open access platform to showcase their work," said Adriaan Klinkenberg, Publishing Director at Elsevier.

Articles submitted to NFS Journal go through Elsevier’s brand new electronic submission and review system EVISE®. The journal will also follow the Article Based Publishing scheme, allowing papers to appear fully citable online just shortly after acceptance.
