International Journal of Food Studies


This is the 3rd issue (vol.2 | issue 1) of International Journal of Food Studies (IJFS), a journal of the ISEKI_Food Association.

The IJFS was recently included in the DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) http://www.doaj.org, http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=openurl&genre=journal&issn=21821054, and in the directory LIVRE: http://livre.cnen.gov.br. The IJFS was also submitted to Google Schoolar (http://scholar.google.com/), and very soon all the journal papers will be automatically indexed and searchable. Google Schoolar provides citations and metrics about authors, papers and journals.

After publishing this 3rd issue, the IJFS will be submitted to following platforms: Scopus, Web of Knowledge, and Journal of Citation Report. After acceptance by Web of Knowledge, it will take about 2 years to get the impact factor, since the Web of Science will be counting the number of citations in order to calculate the impact factor.

We wish you appreciate this 3rd issue of the IJFS as much as the previous. Make the IJFS your mean of communicating your main achievements in the field of Food studies in Education, Research and Industry.
