About the book

Cardiovascular disease is a global health burden responsible for significant morbidity and mortality. It is an enormous burden on healthcare systems and detrimental to socioeconomic progress.
Dietary need for macronutrients should be finely balanced with that of excess. The health benefits of a balanced diet are well established.
The ‘optimal diet’ for cardiovascular health is a matter of considerable controversy. The majority of the literature basis for this has been derived from data from high-income countries, yet over 80 percent of deaths from cardiovascular disease occur in low and middle-income countries. The role of excess macronutrients, in particular, glucose, cholesterol and alcohol are directly related to increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Global food systems and global dietary patterns are related to the diverse global incidence of cardiovascular disease. Whilst most macronutrients present with increased risk when consumed in excess, debilitating cardiovascular diseases are also associated in situations of prolonged deprivation of macronutrients, such as those seen in protein malnutrition and in anorexia nervosa.
Food production and sustainability are embedded both in the agricultural production from an economic perspective and the human need for a country, especially low and middle-income countries. Regulation by governments through food policy needs to consider the impact on the health of the population, especially with respect to cardiovascular disease risk.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.

FAQs

What is Open Access publishing process?

Open Access publishing movement started in early 2000s, when the academic leaders from around the world participated in the formation of the Budapest Initiative. They developed recommendations for Open Access publishing process “which has worked for the past decade to provide the public with unrestricted, free access to scholarly research—much of which is publicly funded. Making the research publicly available to everyone—free of charge and without most copyright and licensing restrictions—will accelerate scientific research efforts and allow authors to reach a larger number of readers.” (reference: http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/)

IntechOpen’s co-founders, both scientists, created the company while doing research in robotics at the Vienna University. Their goals to spread the research freely “for the scientists, by the scientist’ to the rest of the world, aligned with the Open Access movement, and the company soon became the signator of the Budapest Initiative, which currently has more than 1000 supporting organizations worldwide, ranging from universities to funders.

At IntechOpen, we are excited to be working with organizations and people who care about scientific discovery, put the academic needs of scientific community first, and provide an Open Access environment where scientists can maximize their contribution to humanity. By opening access to the world’s scientific research articles and book chapters, we hope to inspire greater opportunity for collaboration, scientific discovery and progress. We gladly follow the Open Access definition: “By “open access” to [peer-reviewed research literature], we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.” (reference: http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/)
