Health and Nutrition – The McCarrison Journal
Historically some members subscribed to the McCarrison Journal Nutrition and Health, named after the title of the Cantor Lectures given by Sir Robert McCarrison
The Journal some years ago lost momentum so was not reaching its target of 4 issues a year and we understood was to be relaunched . We later learned that Sage claimed ownership of the title and took it over unilaterally, creating a new journal independent of the Society.
We dispute this; the President advises us we always owned the title. The President was due to send a formal letter to Sage but it is not clear this even happened. It is my intention to follow up on this issue to better understand if a valid claim for the title can be made.
The Journal is peer reviewed so whilst of interest to many is not directed at a wider readership. Importantly it is included in the NCBI database.
Currently the situation as to the future of he Sage Journal is unclear and access is not available
