The Council for Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (CONEM) adheres to the criteria for authorship as outlined by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE):
Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content. Authorship credit should be based only on substantial contributions to:
- Conception and design, or analysis and interpretation of data; AND
- Drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; AND
- Final approval of the version to be published.
Extensive collaboration with international research environments characterizes the research at CONEM.
The following areas, amongst others, are covered by CONEM’s activities:
- Nutrition as it relates to biochemistry, neurochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, toxicology, chemical mutagenesis, embryonic and child development, normal and pathological aging processes, cognitive and emotional brain functions and pharmacology.
- Effects of toxic metals and metalloids on human health, as well as of natural antidote nutrients, such as selenium, with several factors now interacting to distort the balance between burdens of toxic elements and dietary intake of their natural antidote nutrients.
- Biocompatibility and adverse reactions of dental biomaterials.
- Interactions between environment and human health and the role of the environment in causing or mediating disease.
