Journal Issue
We would like to invite you to contribute to a special issue on occasion of RAFA 2013. The special issue will appear in the journal Food Control (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/food-control). Manuscripts need to be either critical reviews or full research papers and present original, unpublished work, focusing on all areas of food analysis and process control presented at the conference. The Editors would like to point out that all RAFA2013 related contributions will undergo the usual and very strict peer reviewing process by independent referees and are assessed by the same high standards of peer review with regard to novelty and significance. The work described should be innovative either in the approach or in the methods used. The significance of the results either for the science community or for the food industry must also be specified. Contributions that do not fulfill these requirements will not be considered for review and publication.
The manuscript submission deadline will be November 30, 2013. After this deadline manuscripts can only be considered for regular issues of the journal. To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, it is important that authors select “SI: Advances in Food Analysis” when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process at page here.
The journal's guidelines for authors can be found here.
