About the Journal

 

 Focus and Scope: Food and Applied Bioscience Journal (FABJ) is the official publication of the Faculty of Agro-Industry, Chiang Mai University, Thailand. The FABJ is a double-blinded, peer-reviewed (at least two expert reviewers), open-access journal published in English every four months. The FABJ has devoted a platform for fundamental and applied research findings for researchers from universities, research institutions, and industries to publish quality original papers in all branches of food science and technology and applied bioscience. It aims to be a leading national and international journal for the multidisciplinary agro-industrial (food and non-food) research community. The FABJ publishes research papers, short communication, scientific notes, and comments.                                                                        

               The scope of the journal covers the following main topic areas:

  • Food science and technology 
  • Packaging
  • Food engineering
  • Product development
  • Quality assurance
  • Food safety
  • Applied bioscience focusing on biotechnology, applied biology, bioactive compounds, ingredients, nutrition, nutraceuticals, nanoscience, waste treatment, and utilization and high value-added food by-products
  • Product quality and shelf life
  • Process efficiency and emerging technologies
  • Consumer research
  • Agri-food business
  • Agro-industrial management

Peer review Process: Review Process 

               The manuscript submitted to the Journal undergoes a thorough and rigorous peer-review process. Final acceptance for all manuscripts is based on quality, impact, and originality of research. The aim of the whole review process is to complete within 2 - 3 months.  To expedite the review process, authors have to suggest at least three potential reviewers with full contact details and email addresses for their manuscript. Suggested reviewers should not be passed or present research collaborators of any of the authors and should not be from the authors' host institutions. The Editor's decision is independent of these suggestions and is final.                                                

               Manuscript review is undertaken in the following steps:

  • Each manuscript undergoes an initial internal editorial review to ensure that the manuscript meets the scope and the style of the Journal. The authors are notified of the outcome within 3-7 days of manuscript submission.
  • On passing the internal editorial review, the manuscripts are sent to 3-4 independent expert reviewers.
  • Once all referees have returned their reports, a decision to accept, reject or revise a manuscript is made based on the referees' comments and the editorial judgment.
  • If applicable the authors have conveyed the reviewers' comments and asked to answer any criticisms. In the case of substantial criticisms by a referee, the article may be sent back to the concerned referee for a second review.
  • Best efforts are made to evaluate arguments given by the referees and the authors before reaching a final decision which rests with the Editor and is made as rapidly as possible.
  • After acceptance, the proof version is edited and sent to the corresponding author to confirm the proofed article within 1 week
