We are inviting academic editorial contributors to The SAGE Encyclopedia of Nutrition & Health, a new 4-volume reference to be published in 2016. This reference provides a broad multidisciplinary perspective on nutrition and behavioral health, answering questions such as: What are the cognitive effects of malnourishment of children? Which studies show which foods lower cholesterol? How is behavior modification used in obesity counseling? What are the FDA rules governing vitamins and supplements marketed on multiple media platforms? What is a “food desert”? How do nutrient needs change across the life span? What are the economic and psychosocial impacts on communities and countries affected by poor nutrition? This encyclopedia, informed by experts across nutrition science, psychology, sociology, economics, health care, public policy, social work, and education, is a valuable resource for students, professors, and librarians looking to explore the complex relationship between the science of human nutrition and health as it intersects with lifestyle choices, social/cultural environments, and the psychology of human behavior.

This project includes approximately 700 articles organized A-Z in the following categories: Adult Nutrition & Health Country Profiles Culture and Nutrition Exercise and Nutrition Infant and Children’s Nutrition & Health Large-Scale Nutrition Research Nutrition in Disease Prevention Nutrition in Disease States Professional Education and Practice Public Education and Public Health Science of Nutrition Types of Foods and Nutrients Each 1,000 to 5,000-word article will include the name and affiliation of the contributor in the byline of the entry. This comprehensive project will be published by SAGE Publications and the General Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr. Marie-Pierre St-Onge, Columbia University Institute of Human Nutrition.

We are currently making assignments with a deadline of JANUARY 15, 2015. If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature, redefining sociological issues in today’s terms. Moreover, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits. SAGE Publications, offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed product for contributions totaling 10,000 words or more.

The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step we will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can select topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally, Style and Submission Guidelines will be provided that detail article specifications.
