About the Journal
Focus and Scope
The aim of the journal is to be a true scientific forum in food science and technology. It is open to all the national and international scientific communities and promotes original papers (Original Research Articles), critical reviews (Review Articles) and Short Communications of young researchers and top specialists in the specific fields.
Peer Review Process
The aim of the peer review process is to accept for publication high value scientific articles which bring significant and original contributions in specific topics. The scientific papers, received from the authors from all over the world are subjected to double-blind peer reviewing process by a group of experts, in order to ensure the high-quality standards of the scientific journals published by AcademicPres Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
We are using Open Journal System (OJS) an online system for journal editorial offices to manage the submission and peer-review of articles.
The manuscripts and the Author statement should be uploaded together on the website of the journal. Once you have submitted your manuscript, it will be assigned a unique manuscript ID number, which will allow you to track the status of your submission. The system will send you afterwards an automated email to confirm the reception of your manuscript by the journal editorial office.
The editor evaluates if the manuscript is appropriate for the journal profile. If it is accepted, the article will be sent to at least two independent, anonymous peer-reviewers (who are well-known experts in the field). The reviewers return in maximum 2 weeks their conclusions. Based on the comments of the peer reviewers the editor and the editorial office make a decision: manuscript accepted, accepted with minor/ major revisions or rejected.
Following the review, the accepted articles are uploaded on the authors account including experts’ suggestions and recommendations for improvement, or for revision before final acceptance, respectively. The authors should revise the manuscript in accordance with the referee's comments as soon as possible and upload it back (as a newly submitted manuscript) to the editorial department of the journal.
In all cases, the Editor will take the final decision and could make some editing modifications in the text (style, arrangement, and language adaptations) before publishing.
The journal is published twice a year.
