The International Food Research Journal (IFRJ), published four times a year, publishes papers in English reporting the results of original research in the following areas:

  • Food science, food technology and food biotechnology
  • Product development and sensory evaluation
  • Food habits, nutrition, food health and food safety
  • Food chemistry, food microbiology, analysis and testing
  • Food quality management
  • Food waste management
  • Post harvest food handling
  • Agrifood management, marketing, value chain and regulatory issues
  • Other related topics deemed relevant by the Editorial Board
Emphasis is given to the findings of research and development in the food and allied industries. Each issue of the journal would also contain review articles in these and related fields. Technical notes and short communications are also welcome. Technical notes describe applications, innovations or developments in hardware as well as in processes. Short communications differ from full papers on the basis of depth or completeness. They may report significant new data arising from problems with narrow, well-defined limits, or important findings that warrant rapid publication before broader studies are completed.

Original Articles Only

Research papers, Review articles, Notes and Short Communication are accepted on the understanding that they have not been and will not be published elsewhere without the Chief Editor’s permission.
When submitting notes and short communications, authors should make clear that their work is to be treated as such. Authors should suggest keywords and a short running title for their articles. Papers accepted become the copyright of the Journal.

Authors are requested to submit the names and full contact details (address, affiliation and e-mail) of three potential reviewers for the manuscript.

Manuscript Style

Research papers should be divided into the following sections: (a) An abstract embodying the main conclusion and giving the essential information. It should be intelligible without reference to the paper itself; (b) Introduction – should give the aim of the investigation and a brief statement of previous relevant work with references; (c) Materials and Methods – only new techniques need to be described in detail but known methods must have adequate reference; (d) Results – must be presented with tables and figures for clarity; (e) Discussion – Conclusions - usually interprets the results and the Conclusions should not merely repeat points made in the preceding sections; (g) Acknowledgement – should be kept to the absolute minimum; and (h) References. A short running title must also be provided.

Tables, Graphs, Figures and Photographs

Tables, graphs and figures should be displayed on separate pages in the manuscript after the reference section. Tables and figures should be captioned. Scanned or digital photographs should be in high resolution, minimum 300 dpi in the PC format. For colour reproduction in print, you will receive information regarding the costs from the Editor-in-Chief after receipt of your accepted article. Keep the numbers of Figures and Tables used in the article to the minimum (maximum allowed is a total of 5 Figures and Tables altogether).


Footnotes should be kept to a minimum; in most cases, it will be possible to incorporate the information in the text. If footnotes are used, they should be numbered in the text, indicated by superscript numbers and kept as brief as possible.


References should be cited in the text by the author. All references in the text must be listed at the end of the paper, with the names of authors arranged alphabetically, and titles of papers given. No underlining, italics or bold face should be used. References in incorrect format will be returned for correction.
