The journal Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643) is pleased to support the 10th Asia Pacific Conference on Clinical Nutrition. Abstracts presented at the conference will be published in Nutrients as a conference report. In addition, conference delegates are invited to submit their presentations in the form of a full manuscript for publication in a Special Issue of the journal. Full manuscripts will be subjected to the usual peer-review process, but those that are accepted for publication will be published for a discounted publication fee of CHF800, which represents a 50% discount off the usual CHF1600 fee.
