New framework of dietary behavior determinants published in PLOS ONE

Feb 03, 2017

The article “The DONE framework: Creation, evaluation, and updating of an interdisciplinary, dynamic framework 2.0 of determinants of nutrition and eating”, published by a interdisciplinary, international research team (including Prof. Stefan Hoffmann) on which Dr. Marijn Stok and Prof. Dr. Britta Renner of the university of Konstanz are the lead authors, has just been published in PLOS ONE (February 2nd). PLOS ONE is a highly acclaimed multidisciplinary open-access journal.


The DONE framework is an interdisciplinary, interactive and evolving “framework 2.0” of Determinants of Nutrition and Eating (DONE). The DONE framework was created by an interdisciplinary workgroup in a multiphase, multimethod process, within the European research project DEDIPAC ( Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity. The DONE framework can be freely accessed and used in a highly flexible manner: determinants can be sorted, filtered and visualized for both very specific research questions as well as more general queries. The dynamic nature of the framework allows it to evolve as experts can continually add new determinants and ratings. We anticipate this framework will be useful for research prioritization and intervention development. Importantly, external experts positively evaluated the usefulness, comprehensiveness, and quality of the DONE framework.

The article reporting on the DONE framework is available from PLOS ONE:
