Nutrients would like to share with our readers some encouraging statistics on the journal’s progress through 2013.
We would like to thank our readers for their continuing interest and support which has enabled Nutrients to make great progress in its first four years. We also acknowledge the efforts of our Editorial Board members, those who have guest edited our special issues and the many expert reviewers who have so generously, often repeatedly, given their valuable time to ensure the quality of our publications. We trust that Nutrients will continue to fulfil a need for on-line, open access scientific communication in your field and we hope that we can expand this role by encouraging the promotion and reporting of conferences and other relevant events through the Nutrients website.
