The Arab Journal of Nutrition and Exercise (AJNE) is pleased to announce the Special Issue on nutrition & COVID-19

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness accompanied with a cytokine storm and high level of inflammation. This creates a major disruption in the body, affecting many levels including the appetite, energy needs, muscle mass, functional ability, sleep, as well as general quality of life and wellbeing.

We know that the pillars of a strong immune system are healthy diet, adequate physically activity, and management of stress. Moreover, malnutrition is directly linked to exacerbated complications among hospitalized patients in any disease state and increased length of stay.

With these in mind, we at AJNE would like to touch upon this important topic in a timely manner and announce a Special Issue Call for Papers on the topic of “Nutritional and Functional Wellbeing during COVID-19”. This issue’s guest editor is Dr Mirey Karavatien, Associate Professor of Nutrition and the Assistant Dean at Zayed University. As it is a time-sensitive theme, articles will be published in August 2020.

We welcome submissions that will contribute to this Special Issue. Topics include but are not limited to

Body mass composition changes & COVID-19
Muscle wasting, exercise and physiotherapy in COVID-19
Nutrition management interventions in COVID-19
Food & nutrition related behavioral changes related to COVID-19
Lifestyle related changes and their effect on nutritional status related to COVID-19
Food safety & security in times of COVID-19
General wellbeing, sleep & quality of life & COVID-19
Proposals and articles must be written in English, and we will only consider high-quality original research. Articles should be between 4000 and 6000 words (including abstract, introduction, method, results, discussion and references).

Given the time sensitivity of this topic, we will be processing proposals extremely rapidly.

Proposals of 300 words (excluding references) should be submitted by May 30th, 2020. We will review and respond by June 2nd, 2020. Should your proposal be accepted, the completed article must be submitted by June 26th, 2020.

Submissions can be made through our online manuscript submission system. You need to mention that this submission is for the Special Issue on COVID-19 in your cover letter and include a short biographical note (maximum of 100 words).

There are no publication fees.
