The 15th issue (vol 8 | issue 1) of the International Journal of Food Studies, first issue of the 8th year of publication, is now online.

Based on last Scopus updated (April 11th, 2019), the International Journal of Food Studies has a current CiteScoreTracker2018 of 0.66. This important increase represents the recognition of the journal and papers quality towards next year application for IJFS indexing in the Web of Knowledge.

Since indexing into Scopus, the number of submissions received increased exponentially, that required extra ISEKI-Food Association support. We thank all the editorial team members of IJFS. Without it, this achievement would not be possible.

In addition, submissions made after February 1st, 2019, will have an article publication charge (APC).

Moreover, we would like to invite all those interested in the food sector to take advantage of the last published issue, available in a single pdf file with all the articles of the 15th issue.


Finally, we invite all to leave your opinion and suggestions on the IJFS, by answering the online questionnaire at the IJFS site. It will take less than 5 minutes to complete.


Enjoy issue 15th of IJFS.
