Tables: Should be kept to a minimum and be designed to be as simple as possible. Tables are to be typed one-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Tables should be prepared in Microsoft Word. Each table should be included after references on a separate page. They should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading (and a legend where necessary). Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. The details of the methods used in the study should preferably be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph forms or repeated in the text.

Figures should be kept to a minimum. Each should be included after the tables, each on its own page. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file.  Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper-case letters for their parts (Fig 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.

c. Article Processing Fee

JND is a self-supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the management of the Journal is solely financed by the handling fees received from authors. The manuscript handling fees are required to meet operations expenses such as employees’ salaries, internet services, webhosting, application development and support, electricity etc. Authors are required to pay a manuscript-handling fee of USD 50 for the processing of their articles. Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscripts have been accepted for publication.

d. Peer Review Process

JND operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous. Publication of research articles by JND is dependent primarily on their scientific validity and coherence as judged by our external expert editors and/or peer reviewers. They will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates already published work, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. Reviewers will also be asked to indicate how interesting and significant the research is. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers comments to authors within 8 weeks. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board.
