Vacancy: Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Nutritional Science (JNS)

Published online: 15 October 2021

The Trustees are seeking applications for an Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Nutritional Science (JNS). JNS is an international, peer-reviewed, online only, open access journal that welcomes high-quality research articles in all aspects of nutrition.

The underlying aim of all work should be, as far as possible, to develop nutritional concepts - though the key criterion for acceptance is scientific soundness. JNS encompasses the full spectrum of nutritional science including public health nutrition, epidemiology, dietary surveys, nutritional requirements, metabolic studies, body composition, energetics, appetite, obesity, ageing, endocrinology, immunology, neuroscience, microbiology, genetics, molecular and cellular biology and nutrigenomics. 

The day-to-day role of the Editor-in-Chief involves overseeing the progress of submitted manuscripts, beginning with an initial assessment, through to final acceptance (or rejection); this task is shared with members of the Editorial Board.
