We are organizing a Special Issue on “Food Systems, Food Environment, Diet and Nutrition Related Diseases” for IJERPH, a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
In recent decades, there has been growing interest in the understanding of food systems and food environments as a population approach to promote healthier and more sustainable diets and to prevent and control nutrition-related diseases worldwide. This impactful and promising field needs to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and bring together theories and methodologies from various sectors including epidemiology, geography, sociology, and urban planning. Further, there is a need to better understand this topic in relation to underserved populations (e.g., rural population) and across the lifespan. We encourage researchers to submit articles detailing innovative and cutting-edge methods and results to this Special Issue.
We are especially interested in articles that highlight (1) innovative approaches in addressing this topic, for example, participatory methods; (2) results from underserved populations; and (3) studies assessing the food environment’s effects on children’s health and weight.
