Internationally known nutritionist, Joanne P. Ikeda, traveled to a new dimension on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018. She regretted leaving her wonderful husband, Roy H. Ikeda, and her two marvelous daughters, Melinda Mayumi Ikeda and Jennifer Ayame Ikeda, but knew she would be reunited with them in the Great Beyond. Read the full obituary here.
After retirement, Joanne was elected President of the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior and in 2018 was honored to receive the prestigious Helen Denning Ullrich Award for Lifetime Excellence in Nutrition Education — view her acceptance speech here. Instead of flowers, Joanne requested donations in her name be made to the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior Foundation. Donations can be made online here.
SNEB invites you to submit abstracts for presentation at the 2019 Annual Conference, July 27-30 in Orlando, Florida. SNEB is interested in abstracts about research, and/or programs that relate to behavior change and food choice.

As we begin JNEB's 51st volume, I wanted to look back at last year to provide some perspective on this year. Within the 50th volume, we had five articles being accessed more than 1,000 times between January 2018 and September 2018. I think that is amazing and wanted to share a brief description.
As part of the SNEB strategic plan, an SNEB Division Evaluation Advisory Committee is being formed to evaluate and articulate the role of divisions within SNEB, as well as offering recommendations for strengthening division contributions to SNEB and its members. If you are interested in assisting this committee over the next six months, please email Committee Chair and SNEB Director at Large, Andrea Anater at firstname.lastname@example.org. You don't have to be active in an SNEB leadership role or division to participate — all members are welcome.
Publication Ethics Resources for Editors
Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019 | 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern | Register
About the Webinar
As the number of published articles continues to increase each year, so do the number of fraudulent studies. In fact, the number of retractions in the biomedical literature increased from 467 in 2013 to 684 in 2015 (source: https://www.vox.com/2016/3/24/11299102/scientific-retractions-are-on-the-rise). Fortunately, there are tools available for editors (and reviewers) to help them handle ethically questionable manuscripts at the time of submission or post publication. This webinar provides an overview of two free resources available to editors (and reviewers) to help handle publishing ethics allegations - the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and the Publishing Ethics Resource Kit (PERK).
This webinar is sponsored by the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

Using Mentored Peer Review of Journal Articles as a Strategy for Graduate Student Development
Thursday, March 7, 2019 | 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern | Register
About the Webinar
Training of graduate students to be future scholars often focuses on research design, data collection and interpretation, but commonly the translation of that knowledge to critical appraisal is less developed. The peer review process has been developed to provide a formal structure to evaluate research before it is widely disseminated. The skills needed to translate research training into meaningful and effective peer reviews need to be fostered during training of graduate students. The presenters will discuss a model of peer review training that guides masters and doctoral students through the critical appraisal process to develop a respectful and thorough review of a manuscript submission. This process includes the ability for students to review the anonymous submission independently. After independent reviews are complete, a meeting is held to discuss the strengths and limitations of the paper, as well as the broader contribution to the science.

Much like seeing holiday decorations this time of year, get ready for a slew of food trends to look for in 2019. The question is, which trends will truly take hold in 2019? Some repeating trends in the articles below are plant-based, fermented products, new flavors (African, Japanese, Filipino), continued evolution of meal kits, cannabis/THC foods and more. Enjoy!

Hierarchy of Food Needs
Ellyn Satter, MS, RD, LCSW, BCD, Ellyn Satter Associates
How would it look to apply the principles of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to food management? Why even wrestle with such a conundrum? The Satter Eating Competence Model (ecSatter) stresses joining with individuals right where they are and working within their constraints and circumstances. Rather than emphasizing food selection and portion sizes, ecSatter operationalizes the Dietary Guidelines by emphasizing structured opportunities to eat, and within that structure, encouraging people to eat preferred food in satisfying amounts.
