New this year in the Bibliography are the two lists of citations of papers from the 1999 and 2000 Annual Bibliographies. The lists will allow the reader to see trends in dietary supplement research over the last three years and to follow up in areas of interest.
"The ODS is delighted to partner again with CHPA on this publication that highlights significant research on dietary supplements and their role in health maintenance. We are also greatly indebted to our team of scientific reviewers who assisted us in the compilation of this year's Bibliography," said Rebecca B. Costello, Ph.D., Deputy Director of ODS. "We envision that this bibliography will serve as a useful reference source for students, nutrition and health professionals, educators, and health communicators, as well as the scientists who conduct the research."
Copies of the third Annual Bibliography of Significant Advances in Dietary Supplement Research may be downloaded from the ODS website at http://ods.od.nih.gov/publications/publications.html.
Single copies may also be requested from ODS by phone (301-435-2920) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Office of Dietary Supplements was established at NIH in November 1995 as a result of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act passed by Congress in 1994. The mission of ODS is to strengthen knowledge and understanding of dietary supplements by evaluating scientific information, stimulating and supporting research, disseminating research results, and educating the public to foster an enhanced quality of life and health for the U.S. population.
