Scope of the Journal
The journal accepts both research articles and review papers. The editorial board would like to see review articles focused on nutraceuticals and functional foods and their application. In reviewing the literature the authors are urged to evaluate validity of conclusions based upon the appropriateness of statistical design of the experiment. If necessary, help of a statistician should be sought. Lastly, the reviewers should refrain from introducing personal bias or opinion that cannot be supported experimentally. However, the reviewer could conclude the article with recommendations for future research or appropriate use of a nutraceutical agent.
