Nutrition Database


In its current form, the Canadian Inventory of Dietetic Activities in Research (CIDAR) contains research submitted by members of the Dietitians of Canada. Members of the Canadian Society for Nutritional Sciences can view the research in this database and contribute their work if they desire.

In the near future the information included in the database will be expanded and its name will be changed to the Canadian Inventory of Nutrition and Dietetic Associated Research (CINDAR). This new database will represent a joint effort between Canadian Foundation of Dietetic Research (CFDR), the Dietitians of Canada and the Canadian Society for Nutritional Sciences (CSNS) to provide a consolidated listing of food, nutrition and dietetic practice research activity in Canada. It is currently publicly available to individuals interested in nutrition related research and will continue to be so.

The research activities submitted to CIDAR do not undergo a peer review process. However, information on each abstract is provided so users can determine whether the research has taken place in an academic, practice or student setting and whether it has been published elsewhere. The focus of the database is applied research to influence food practices and nutritional status of healthy Canadians, as well as those with acute or chronic conditions. However, a broad range of nutrition, food, dietetic practice and any related research investigations are welcomed. Changing to the CINAR database will not alter these policies.
