International Journal of Food Studies

The International Journal of Food Studies (IJFS), a journal of the ISEKI_Food Association, is an international peer-reviewed open-access journal featuring scientific articles on the world of Food in Education, Research and Industry. This journal is a forum created specifically to improve the international dissemination of Food Science and Technology knowledge between Education, Research and Industry stakeholders. 


Original contributions relevant to the following topics will be considered for publication:

  • Education methods, including Life Long Learning and e-learning;
  • Research and application in academia, research, industry;
  • Critical reviews of scientific literature by researchers, students, invited authors;
  • Exchange of views and opinions of a scientific nature including testimonies on career experiences in Food Industry/Research/Education (required skills, challenges and successes).

Manuscripts focusing on Food related Education topics are particularly welcome.


The IJFS also accepts original research works dealing with food processing, design, storage and distribution, including effects on product’s safety and quality, and food chain sustainability. The journal is also open to other food-related topics such as food security and food policy.



Original research, reviews, opinions, testimonies and best practices coming from professionals either from the sectors of Education, Research or Industry are welcome to be published in this journal.

Authors must ensure that the submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration.

Papers accepted for publication become the copyright of the Journal.


The International Journal of Food Studies is mainly directed to scientists, technologists, researchers, teachers and students working in the food sector.

Vol 9 (2020): International Journal of Food Studies: Advances in Food Processing and Technology – Special Issue


It is with pleasure that this time we come up with the first special issue of International Journal of Food Studies - 17th issue (vol 9).

This volume presents selected papers on Advances in Food Processing and Technology. Papers cover a wide range of highly interesting topics on new food processes, impact on product properties and optimization. We highlight an invited paper from the 2nd edition of the International School on Modeling and Simulation in Food and BioProcesses, on the numerical mathematical modeling of a continuous thermal processing and its impact on quality.

We take the opportunity to inform our readers that submission of abstracts to the 6th International ISEKI-Food Conference, next 8 to 10 July 2020, at Nicosia – Cyprus, is now open till 28th February 2020.

We wish you enjoy this special issue of the IJFS and we look forward to continue receiving your valuable contributions on Food Science and Technology knowledge bridging Education, Research and Industry.
