Special Issues

The 36th EFFoST International Conference will be partnering with the academic publishing house Elsevier to create two special issues with a collection of articles representing the most cutting-edge research presented at EFFoST2022.    

This year special issues that highlight the themes and topics of the conference will be published in  Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies and Future Foods.  Mid-September, the Conference Organising Committee will invite a select number of authors to contribute to the high-impact journal Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies. In late September, there will be an open call for all other EFFoST2022 presenters and attendees to submit their work to the special issue of the open-access journal, Future Foods. Elsevier will be providing a full waiver for all contributors to the special issue of Future Foods; therefore authors will exceptionally not need to pay the article processing charge fee.

Every article will undergo a rigorous peer view process lead by the Editors-in-Chief and the EFFoST2022 Guest editor. The deadline for the submission of manuscripts for both special issues is 31 December 2022.

Supporting Journals of EFFoST2022
The 36th EFFoST International Conference has four supporting journals, namely: Trends in Food Science and Technology, Innovation Food Science and Emerging Technologies, Food Control, and Future Foods.

Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies (IFSET) aims to provide the highest quality original contributions on new developments. It presents works to advance current scientific knowledge and understanding or with high technical relevance. The journal publishes research and review papers dealing with key advances in food science, food engineering and technology, safety, security, sustainability, fundamental, kinetics and mechanistic aspects of promising emerging food processing technologies as well as key food science innovations.

Future Foods is a dedicated Journal to address the challenges of climate change and sustainability in food production. A transformation of the way food is currently manufactured and consumed is necessary to feed an ever-growing population whilst limiting its environmental impact. Future Foods publishes research that embodies the objective of developing new technologies and food sources for more sustainable food systems. 

Trends in Food Science & Technology is one of the premier international peer-reviewed journals publishing critical reviews and commentaries of current technology, food science and human nutrition. Its role is to fill the gap between the specialized primary journals and general trade magazines by focusing on the most promising new research developments and their current and potential food industry applications in a readable, scientifically rigorous way.

Food Control is an international journal that provides essential information for those involved in food safety and process control. It covers the main areas that relate to food process control or to food safety of human foods, such as microbial food safety and antimicrobial systems, mycotoxins, risk assessment, quality assurance, etc.  The contributions should be innovative either in the approach or in the methods used.
