Research Categories


The Journal of Food Biochemistry publishes fully peer-reviewed original research and review papers on the effects of handling, storage, and processing on the biochemical aspects of food tissues, systems, and bioactive compounds in the diet. Researchers in food science, food technology, biochemistry, and nutrition, particularly based in academia and industry, will find much of great use and interest in the journal. Coverage includes: -Biochemistry of postharvest/postmortem and processing problems -Enzyme chemistry and technology -Membrane biology and chemistry -Cell biology -Biophysics -Genetic expression -Pharmacological properties of food ingredients with an emphasis on the content of bioactive ingredients in foods Examples of topics covered in recently-published papers on two topics of current wide interest, nutraceuticals/functional foods and postharvest/postmortem, include the following: -Bioactive compounds found in foods, such as chocolate and herbs, as they affect serum cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease -The mechanism of the ripening process in fruit -The biogenesis of flavor precursors in meat -How biochemical changes in farm-raised fish are affecting processing and edible quality

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Journal of Food Biochemistry

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
