Volume 4 is published Open Access.



As a special feature during its relaunch, for all papers submitted to Nutrition and Healthy Aging in 2016/2017 the OA fee will be waived (normally $1250). All 2016/2017 papers will be published with the OA license by default and will appear in PubMed Central.


Volumes 1-3 of Nutrition and Healthy Aging were published as Nutrition and Aging.

Nutrition and Healthy Aging is an international forum for research on nutrition as a means of promoting healthy aging. It is particularly concerned with the impact of nutritional interventions on the metabolic and molecular mechanisms which modulate aging and age-associated diseases, including both biological responses on the part of the organism itself and its micro biome. Results emanating from both model organisms and clinical trials will be considered. With regards to the latter, the journal will be rigorous in only accepting for publication well controlled, randomized human intervention trials that conform broadly with the current EFSA and US FDA guidelines for nutritional clinical studies. The journal will publish research articles, short communications, critical reviews and conference summaries, whilst open peer commentaries will be welcomed.

SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPT

Authors are requested to submit their manuscript electronically to the journal’s editorial management system.
Note that the manuscript should be uploaded as one file with tables and figures included. This file can be a Word document, a PDF, or a zip file.

Required files
After the article has been accepted, the following electronic files are required:
1. a word processor file of the text, such as Word or LateX (If using LaTeX, please use the standard article.sty as a style file and also send a pdf version of the LaTeX file)
2. separate files of all figures (if any); see "Preparation of manuscripts" for the required file formats.

Submission of an article is understood to imply that the article is original and unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Any possible conflict of interest, financial or otherwise, related to the submitted work must be clearly indicated in the manuscript. Procedures involving experiments on human subjects should be in accord with the ethical standards of the Committee on Human Experimentation of the institution in which the experiments were done or in accord with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975. Procedures involving experimentation on animal subjects should be in accord with either the guide of the institution in which the experiments were done, or with the National Research Council’s guide for the care and use of laboratory animals.

If the address to which proofs should be sent is different from the correspondence address, authors are kindly requested to indicate this.

PRE-PRESS AND PROOFS

Accepted articles will be placed online as "pre-press" articles shortly after acceptance. This process will occur before the author receives proofs.

The corresponding author will receive a pdf proof and is asked to check this proof carefully (the publisher will execute a cursory check only). Corrections other than printer's errors, however, should be avoided. Costs arising from such corrections will be charged to the authors.

OPEN ACCESS OPTION

The IOS Press Open Library® offers authors an Open Access (OA) option. By selecting the OA option, the article will be freely available from the moment it is published, also in the pre-press module. In the Open Library® the article processing charges are paid in the form of an Open Access Fee. Authors will receive an Open Access Order Form upon acceptance of their article. Open Access is entirely optional.
