Publisher of the most cited open-access journals in their fields.
The specialty section on Clinical Nutrition in our new open-access journal, Frontiers in Nutrition, aims to address the relationship between disease and nutrition as well as nutritional care; topics that have been attracting increasing scientific interest within the scientific community and among clinical practitioners over the past decades. We welcome papers that address metabolic and nutritional disturbances in order to advance the design, development and clinical application of nutritional support. Our ultimate object is to further progress in the growing field of clinical nutrition by welcoming approaches that increase our understanding and introduce new ideas in order to develop new methodologies and treatments. Frontiers’ Research Topics are particularly suited to introduce new developments and directions in the field of nutrition overall and the specialty area on clinical nutrition, in particular (http://home.frontiersin.org/about/research-topics).

Clinical Nutrition welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Clinical Nutrition, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Clinical Nutrition will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Nutrition.
