Science within Food:

Up-to-date Advances on Research and Educational Ideas

Food Science Book Series #1 - Home

This series is committed to giving an overview of the state of the art, as well as upcoming trends, and to promoting discussion about scientific, technological and educational aspects related to food science.

Food Science is playing an increasingly important role in today's society: health, welfare, economy... and many other related issues make this field one of the most dynamic and relevant areas of current research.

The book will be composed of chapters written by active researchers using original research materials, but presented in a way accessible to a public beyond those ones who are specialists in the topic dealt.
It is the main goal of this approach to take full pedagogical advantage of many research materials that researchers manage around the world but which are outside the scope of more specialized scholarly publications.

This call for papers is aimed to all those researchers who are active in any of the following themes:

  • Food chemistry and biochemistry
  • Food microbiology
  • Food physics
  • Food analysis
  • Food processing and packaging
  • Food engineering and hygienic design
  • Environmental impact of food production and consumption
  • Foods of plant origin
  • Foods of animal origin
  • Formal and non-formal education on the above topics

Please, take some time to read the proposed list of topics for this book.

Education-oriented original research papers and mini-reviews are especially welcome, although more "regular" research papers might also be suitable if the addressed topic is clearly exposed for non-specialists. Mini-reviews can be thematic in nature, or focused on the activity of a specific research group. In this latter case, the work should provide an integrated view of the research carried out by that group across the years.

If you are interested in submitting a chapter proposal, please read the Instructions for authors section.
