About us

Welcome to the BDA forum for reviewers.

The purpose of this forum is to provide a platform for members supporting with NICE, SIGN and PEN reviewers to provide support to each other. We will also share any new review opportunities on this forum page.

For PEN reviewers, please find attached a migraine review to provide an example of the type of comments PEN are looking for. You will also find attached the PEN style guide and guide to being a PEN reviewer. The role of the reviewer is to check the content for accuracy, clarity and usefulness from a practitioner perspective as well as considering any additional UK perspectives. There are many other useful resources for reviewers on the PEN website. If we send a review you’re interested in supporting with, please email us ( to register your interest.

In the meantime, we’d recommend joining the Facebook Nutrition and Dietetics Journal Club #RDJC.
