Publisher of the most cited open-access journals in their fields.
Sport and Exercise Nutrition is the only fully open-access section devoted to publishing high-class research in sport nutrition. There is a growing awareness that adequate dietary strategies are absolute key factors in optimizing exercise training and sports performance. The work of sport dieticians and exercise professionals requires a solid evidence base through well-designed experiments. Therefore, we solicit for this section, new ground-breaking scientific papers on the physiological, dietetic, behavioral, genetic, clinical or methodological aspects of sport and exercise nutrition. The section welcomes both fundamental research (human, animal, cells) as well as findings that are directly applicable to the active community, ranging from the truly elite athletes over the general population to the physically frail patient groups. We also invite studies on the interaction of diet and physical activity on health and well-being. Our ultimate goal is to create an active community of researchers in sport and exercise nutrition and to stimulate fast and free dissemination of their high-quality research findings.

Articles published in the section Sport and Exercise 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.
