Food Microbiology

(ISSN 1095-9998)

Aims & Scope

Food Microbiology publishes original research articles, short research communications, and review papers dealing with all aspects of the microbiology of foods. The editors aim to publish manuscripts of the highest quality which are both relevant and applicable to the broad field covered by the journal. Studies must be novel and have a clear connection to the microbiology of foods or food production environments. The microbiological aspects of all stages of food production, from pre- to post-harvest and throughout processing and preparation, are of interest. Studies should be of general interest to the international community of food microbiologists. The editors make every effort to ensure rapid and fair reviews, resulting in timely publication of accepted manuscripts.

Papers relating to the following topics will be considered:

• Taxonomy, Physiology, genetics, biochemistry, and behavior of microorganisms that are either used to make foods or that represent safety or quality problems

• Effects of preservatives, including bioprotectants, processes, and packaging systems on the microbiology of foods

• Methods for detection, identification and enumeration of foodborne microorganisms or microbial toxins

• Microbiology of food fermentations

• Predictive microbiology and applications to foods

• Microbial communities and ecology of foods, food production, and food processing environments

• Microbiological aspects of food safety

• Microbiological aspects of general and sensorial food quality and spoilage

Papers with a focus on the following areas will not be considered:

• Biotechnology or food technology, including process or product developments, optimizations, and formulations

• Development of new microbial strains for fermentations, ingredient production, or probiotic applications

• Studies involving health claims

• Surveys of microorganisms in foods, unless the surveys are research hypothesis-driven

• Development of biosensors or other analytical methods, unless efficacy is evaluated in foods or food environments
