Food Microbiology publishes original research articles, short research communications, and review papers dealing with all aspects of the microbiology of foods. The editors aim to publish manuscripts of the highest quality which are both relevant and applicable to the broad field covered by the journal. Studies must be novel and have a clear connection to the microbiology of foods or food production environments. The microbiological aspects of all stages of food production, from pre- to post-harvest and throughout processing and preparation, are of interest. Studies should be of general interest to the international community of food microbiologists. The editors make every effort to ensure rapid and fair reviews, resulting in timely publication of accepted manuscripts.
Papers relating to the following topics will be considered:
Food Microbiology First Look is a preview of the papers under review in the journal in an effort to increase transparency. Authors may choose to post a preprint version of their paper on SSRN during the submission process to the journal. Papers will appear on the First Look page when they are sent for peer review. The status will be updated when the paper is revised and accepted. If the paper is rejected it will move out of the First Look page and into the main SSRN repository.
Articles on SSRN are preprints that have not been peer-reviewed, and therefore should not be considered as truthful, established information. You can find peer-reviewed content of Food Microbiology on: https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/food-microbiology
