Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nutrients was launched in 2009 and has published over 10,000 papers since. 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 your research findings and perspectives.

As the Section Editor of the newly established Sports Nutrition section, I personally invite you to submit a review paper in your specific area of expertise. I am looking for quality review papers on any topic within sports nutrition (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nutrients/sections/Sport_Nutrition). You can send me an email message ([email protected]) if you have any questions about this process and the topic you wish to review. I assure you that the review process for your paper will be fair and expeditious.  

Dr. David C. Nieman
Guest Editor
