Citing NASR

Papers published using Nutrition Assessment Shared Resource (NASR) tools should reference Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Nutrition Coordinating Center (NCC) of the University of Minnesota.

IMPORTANT: Please email NASR (nasr@fredhutch.org) to notify us about any publications that reflect use of our tools and/or databases. Thank you.

Multiple-day food records and 24-hour dietary recalls

"Dietary intake data were collected by the staff of the Nutrition Assessment Shared Resource (NASR) of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, Washington, using collection tools developed by NASR. Nutrient calculations were performed using the Nutrition Data System for Research (NDSR) software version [please contact us for the version used for your study], developed by the Nutrition Coordinating Center, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN."

Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ)

"Dietary intake data were collected using a food frequency questionnaire developed by the Nutrition Assessment Shared Resource (NASR) of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, Washington. Nutrient calculations were performed using the Nutrient Data System for Research (NDSR) software version [please contact us for the version used for your study], developed by the Nutrition Coordinating Center, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN."

Nutrient Database

Glycemic Index Database

If your study uses the FFQ developed by Fred Hutch and you publish using data from the GLAC (glycemic load based on available carbohydrate) or GLTC (glycemic load based on total carbohydrate) variables, please cite the following reference:
