Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Epidemiological and experimental studies provide evidence regarding the key role of nutrition in brain health, but the specific mechanisms behind its effects are unclear. Recent advancements in omic technology along with the creation of a scientific environment that supports the collection and sharing of data and biospecimens from large cohorts and clinical trials has accelerated the pace of scientific discoveries in this field. For this Special Issue, we invite researchers to showcase the application of omics and existing resources to the study of nutrition and the brain—specifically, neurodegenerative diseases and related traits. Hypothesis-generating studies of nutrients and non-nutrients involving humans or animals are welcome. The submission of hypothesis-testing studies of established omic markers of nutrient response and neurodegeneration is also encouraged.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
