Dear Colleagues,

Nutrients was launched in 2009 and has since published over 10,000 papers. With an impact factor of 4.546, Nutrients ranks as a Q1 journal and has become an excellent open source platform to ensure rapid and widespread exposure of research findings and perspectives.

We, the editors of the newly established section Nutrition Methodology & Assessment, invite you to submit a review paper to this Special Issue “Nutrition Methodology and Assessment: Where Are We Today?”. We welcome the submission of high-quality review papers on any topic within the field of nutrition methodology and nutritional assessment. Further, regular research papers that provide novel insights and significant advances in this field are of interest (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nutrients/sectioneditors/Nutrition_Methodology_Assessment).
