Editorial policy

The Food and Nutrition Bulletin is intended to make available policy analyses, state-of-the-art summaries, and original scientific articles relating to multidisciplinary efforts to alleviate the problems of hunger and malnutrition in the developing world. It is not intended for the publication of scientific articles of principal interest only to individuals in a single discipline or within a single country or region. Notices of relevant books and other publications will be published if they are received for review. The Bulletin is also a vehicle for notices of forthcoming international meetings that satisfy the above criteria and for summaries of such meetings,

The Food and Nutrition Bulletin, successor to the PAG Bulletin of the former Protein-Calorie Advisory Group of the United Nations System, also serves as the principal outlet for the publication of reports of working groups and other activities of the UN ACC Subcommittee on Nutrition (SCN) and its Advisory Group on Nutrition. The SON itself is a focal point for coordinating activities of FAO, WHO, UNICEF, the UNU, Unesco, the World Bank, the World Food Programme, the World Food Council, the United Nations Environment Programme, and other United Nations bodies with an interest in food and nutrition,

Unsolicited manuscripts of articles of the type published in this and previous issues may be sent to the Cambridge office of the Bulletin (See "Note for Contributors" elsewhere in this issue); they must be typed, double-spaced, with complete references, and must include original figures. All articles submitted will be reviewed promptly and the author will be notified of the editorial decision. Any disciplinary or conceptual approach relevant to problems of would hunger and malnutrition is welcomed, and controversy over some of the articles is anticipated. Letters to the editor are encouraged and will be printed if judged to have an adequate basis and to be of sufficient general interest.

It is expressly understood that articles published in the Bulletin do not necessarily represent the views of the United Nations University or of any United Nations organization. The views expressed and the accuracy of the information on which they are based are the responsibility of the authors. Some articles in the Bulletin are reports of various international committees and working groups and do represent the consensus of the individuals involved; whether or not they also represent the opinions or policies of the sponsoring organizations is expressly stated
