Author Guidelines

Welcome and thank you for considering the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention (IJDRP) as a venue for your work. 

As an open access self-published medical journal, our mission is to improve human health through better nutrition and lifestyle, effectively reversing and preventing chronic disease. The journal strives to accomplish this goal through publishing research aimed to increase understanding of how diet influences health from molecular to population levels, the development of nutritional strategies, guidelines and education, informing government and corporate policy, the education of researchers and practitioners, and the dissemination of accurate and timely nutrition information to health professionals and the public.
The focus and the topics of this Journal are as outlined below along with requirements for submission/publication.
