“EFAD student e-journal” call for abstracts


The DIETS2 thematic network launched an electronic journal for students in the field of dietetics entitled “DIETS student e-journal”. DIETS funding ended in December 2013, but the European Federation of the Associations of Dieitians (EFAD) wishes to continue to support this important e-journal.

The main goal of the e-journal is to allow communication between students in Dietetics across Europe, by giving them the opportunity to present and share their scientific and research activities. In addition, among the journal aims is to encourage students to become more reflective and critical of their own research skills, considering their peers’ work and to facilitate potential collaboration between Higher Education Institutes.

The e-journal covers many scientific areas relevant to the field of dietetics and nutrition, i.e. dietetic practice (across the whole range of therapeutic conditions, administrative dietetics and lifecycle), public health dietetic/ nutrition, sports nutrition, nutrition epidemiology, research methodology in dietetics, medical nutrition therapy, food science and biotechnology, food microbiology, food service systems, dietetics education, nutrigenomics, psychology of eating, eating patterns and behaviors, food sociology-anthropology-history, food and culinary technology.

Abstracts submission for the third issue will be open until July 15th 2014.
