Food Science and Applied Biotechnology is a peer-reviewed journal which publishes high-quality research articles focused on the fields of Food Science and Technology, Food Processing, Food Quality, Food Safety, Food Chemistry, Food Microbiology, Food/Drug Interaction; Pesticide Residue Analysis; Applied Biochemistry, Biochemical Analysis, Molecular Biology and Microbiology, Biotechnology; Applied Biotechnology and Bioprocess Engineering, Enzymology and Enzyme Engineering, Biotechnological Production Systems, Genomics and Proteomics; Metagenomics, Bioenergetics, Bioinformatics, Natural Antioxidants in Food, Industrial Microbiology; Metabolic Engineering; Photochemistry; Food Physics, Food Engineering, Applied Ecology , Waste and Biomass Valorization, Food Toxicology, Aquaphotomics, Nutrition and Dietetics, Catering, Tourism, etc.
The journal is an interdisciplinary platform for presentation of research and innovations and will aim to publish two types of manuscripts: new basic research and innovations and studies with more applied orientation.
Manuscripts presenting simple recipes for food production with limited application and marginal or insufficient novelty; manuscripts duplicating any other previously published work; manuscripts that are currently under consideration or peer review or accepted for publication or in press or published elsewhere will be considered out of scope for the journal.
This journal will publish two online issues per year and will include reviews, research articles, short communications and technical reports.
