The following Article Collection/ Thematic Series is currently open for submissions:

Nutrition in Aging

Dove Medical Press is pleased to invite you to submit your research to an upcoming Article Collection on "Nutrition in Aging" in Clinical Interventions in Aging.

A diet rich in nutrients and antioxidants is linked to the prevention of cardiovascular and cardiometabolic diseases, osteoporosis, and diabetes. Early vascular aging is linked to an increased risk of premature mortality related to cardiovascular, metabolic, and renal diseases. Malnutrition is associated with accelerated aging. Furthermore, insufficient intake of nutrients may lead to frailty, anemia, and impaired cognition. With advanced age and concomitant comorbidities, proper nutrition is even more important for supporting healthy aging, and nutrition is a part of secondary and tertiary prevention of different diseases that accompany aging. 

A healthy lifestyle, which includes physical activity, the maintenance of an optimal weight, smoking cessation, and a healthy diet reduces the risk of subsequent cardiovascular events and mortality. There is more evidence that cardiovascular diseases are marked by vascular aging. Endothelial senescence represents one of the earliest features of arterial aging and contributes to many age-related diseases. Comprehending the pathophysiology of vascular aging, along with its repercussions and potential therapeutic opportunities, presents an advantageous prospect that may translate into effective prevention and the attainment of a cardiovascular disease-free survival over time. Studies demonstrate that the intake of antioxidants and food with anti-inflammatory properties may improve vascular function. Thus, research on the mechanism of nutrition’s impact on overall health, and particularly vascular health, has its significance in healthy aging. 

This Article Collection invites original research articles and reviews of genetic, metabolic, clinical, and epidemiological studies related to nutrition in aging. Particularly, we are interested in studies presenting mechanisms affected or altered by nutrition and emphasized with aging or influencing aging. Nutritional supplements, functional food, different nutrients and their impact on (cardio)vascular and metabolic health is of interest for the present Collection. However, the Collection is open to other influences of nutrition (e.g., in oncologic disases, malnutrition, etc.) in aging. 

All manuscripts submitted to this Article Collection will undergo a full peer-review; the Guest Advisors for this Collection will not be handling the manuscripts (unless they are an Editorial Board member). Please review the journal scope and author submission instructions prior to submitting a manuscript. The deadline for submitting manuscripts is 30 September 2024. For questions about this Article Collection, including inquiries regarding discounts of the article publishing charges, please contact Commissioning Editor Dr. MK Huffman at [email protected].

Please submit your manuscript on our website, quoting the promo code TIUYO to indicate that your submission is for consideration in this Article Collection.

What is the advantage to you of publishing in Clinical Interventions in Aging?

  • It is an open access journal which means that your paper is available to anyone in the world to download for free directly from the Dove website.
  • Although Clinical Interventions in Aging receives a large number of papers, unlike many traditional journals, your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space. We are an electronic journal and there are no limits on the number or size of the papers we can publish.
  • The time from submission to a decision being made on a paper can, in many journals, take some months and this is very frustrating for authors. Clinical Interventions in Aging has a quicker turnaround time than this. Generally peer review is complete within 3-4 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-14 days of this. It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 6 weeks for first editorial decision.
  • Many authors have found that our peer reviewer’s comments substantially add to their final papers.

To recover our editorial and production costs and continue to provide our content at no cost to readers we charge authors or their institution an article publishing charge.
