Position Papers

A position paper is a critical analysis of current facts, data and research literature. A key feature of the paper is the position statement, which presents the Academy's stance on an issue. The Academy and its members, other professional associations, government agencies and industry use position papers to shape food choices and impact the public's nutritional status.

Position papers are available to Academy members, health professionals and the public on the Academy's website at no charge and are published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
