Al GIZZAI: Public Health Nutrition Journal
Al Gizzai: Public Health Nutrition is a new fully open-access publication from the Department of Public Health, Universitas Islam Negeri Alauddin, which strongly encourages a multidisciplinary approach to research in public health nutrition. Publishes original research articles, communications, and reviews on basic and applied nutrition. The mission of Algizzai Journal is to serve as the journal for the global health of nutrition and life sciences research on diet and health. The field of public health nutrition includes the study of nutrients during growth, reproduction, aging, health, and disease.
Original research articles must declare a research hypothesis and include aspects of mechanisms. Reviews are open to systematic reviews and meta-analyses but the review must provide a critical analysis of existing nutrition evidence, identify gaps in knowledge, and include recommendations for future research. Authors are encouraged to read and follow the Guide for Authors and Author Submission Checklist
Articles covering basic and applied research on all aspects of health nutrition sciences are encouraged, including nutritional biochemistry and metabolism; metabolomics, nutrient gene interactions; nutrient requirements for health; nutrition and disease; digestion and absorption; nutritional anthropology; epidemiology; the influence of socioeconomic and cultural factors on the nutrition of the individual and the community; the impact of nutrient intake on disease response and behavior; the consequences of nutritional deficiency on growth and development, endocrine and nervous systems, and immunity; nutrition and gut microbiota; food intolerance and allergy; nutrient drug interactions; nutrition and aging; nutrition and cancer; obesity; diabetes; and intervention programs.
Another focus of the Journal is to publish research that advances the understanding of nutrients and health protectants in food for improving the health condition.
The Journal also encourages the submission of manuscripts describing investigations in animal models and cell cultures that utilize methodologic approaches or techniques in biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, toxicology, and physiology. Such investigations must include clear research objectives for hypothesis testing and elucidating mechanisms. Nutrient intakes in human populations and novel analytical techniques for bioactive compounds are within the scope of the mission for Al Gizzai Journal
