Managing editor(s): Josée De La Durantaye (Directrice générale) / Editor(s): Josée De La Durantaye (Rédactrice en chef)


Nutrition Science en évolution is the official journal of the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec (OPDQ) [Quebec Professional Order of Dietitians], the organization in charge of overseeing professional dietitians in Quebec. The journal has been published under that name since 2003; it was previously known as Diététique en action, dating back to 1987. The goal of the journal is to provide dietitians, nutritionists and health care professionals with professional development/continuing education opportunities. The journal is published three times a year in March, June and November.

The key sections are "Dossier" and the article entitled "Le Plus", both of which provide original literature reviews on nutrition-related topics of interest. "Dossier" generally consists of three or four articles dealing with the same general topic, while "Le Plus" explores a different nutrition-related topic.

The other sections are as follows:

  • "Pratico-pratique": This section focuses on validated tools, methods and programs with specific applications for practitioners.
  • "Reportage": This section focuses on highlights of conferences, conventions and other continuing education events relating to nutrition.
  • "Veille scientifique": This section provides references to relevant nutrition-related scientific articles published in the preceding months (non-exhaustive list).
  • "Chronique juridique": This legal column deals with the regulatory aspects of the profession.
