For the development of STROBE-nut, a consortium that worked on guidance for better REporting of Food INtakE Data “REFINED” joined forces with the NEON consortium and the DIET@NET network from the UK. 

REFINED combines expertise in nutritional epidemiology, public health, food science, statistics and medical ethics and consists of

The NEON-project was initiated by members of the Network of Epidemiology and Nutrition (NEON) in Sweden and is coordinated by Elisabet Wirfält. Several NEON members have during the last 4-5 years been actively involved in the systematic literature reviews, which formed the basis for the revised 5th edition of the Nordic Nutrition Recommendations (NNR 2012, launched late in 2013) as well as in the scientific evaluation project within the Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment. This exercise highlighted a need for guidelines to help researchers when publishing results from nutritional epidemiology studies. The group of NEON members consists of:

  • Christina Berg, associate professor, University of Gothenburg
  • Elisabet Forsum, professor, Linköping University
  • Agneta Hörnell, professor, Umeå University
  • Christel Larsson, professor, University of Gothenburg
  • Emily Sonestedt, research associate, Lund University
  • Elisabet Wirfält, professor, Lund University (coordinator)
  • Agneta Åkesson, full professor, Karolinska Institutet

DIET@NET is the Dietary Assessment Tools Network with 8 Universities/groups from the UK. It is led by Prof. Janet Cade, University of Leeds

Prof. Matthias Egger and Myriam Cevallos University of Bern, Switzerland/ STROBE collaborated as contacts for the STROBE statement.
