Publishing timely and important findings in basic, clinical, and emerging nutrition science research, the society journals are the premier journals in the field of nutrition. In addition to research reports, journals enhance content by providing commentaries and critical reviews written by leaders in the scientific community and special supplement issues on topics in nutrition.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) is the highest ranked peer-reviewed journal in nutrition and dietetics. In publication since 1952, AJCN publishes the latest findings in basic and clinical studies relevant to human nutrition. AJCN was selected by the Special Libraries Association (SLA) as one of the top 100 most influential journals in Biology and Medicine over the last 100 years. AJCN is an important resource for researchers and practitioners in the field of clinical nutrition.

The Journal of Nutrition (JN), published since 1928, was the first journal dedicated to publishing original, peer-reviewed research in all areas of nutrition. JN provides the latest research on a broad spectrum of topics of vital interest to researchers, students, policymakers and all individuals with interests in nutrition.

Advances in Nutrition (AN), in publication since 2010, publishes review articles that highlight the significance of recent research in nutrition and illustrate the central role of nutrition in the promotion of health and prevention of disease. In 2013, AN was named a finalist for best new journal by ALPSP.

ASN will expand its publications program in 2017 with the publication of Current Developments in Nutrition (CDN). CDN is a new open access, multidisciplinary nutrition science journal that will expand the scope of nutrition research published by ASN, ranging from deep, mechanistic studies at molecular/biochemical and cellular levels to whole-body metabolism, clinical health, fitness, and population health. The journal will publish articles in areas of emerging research including food and nutrition policy, agricultural and food systems, nutrition education, dietary assessment, and animal nutrition among others.
