Editor-in-Chief tops the world rankings in Agriculture Sciences!

Dr. Sun
Professor Da-Wen Sun, UCD School of Agriculture, Food Science and Veterinary Medicine and EiC of Food and Bioprocess Technology, has been ranked amongst the top one percent of agricultural scientists from around the world, according to the Essential Science Indicators (ESI) database.
The ESI database from Thomson Scientific provides data for ranking individual scientists, institutions, countries, and journals. Based on a regularly updated compilation of the ISI Web of Science, the world's most authoritative citation database, ESI provides citation counts as a form of peer recognition which generally reflects the dependence of the scientific community on the work of individual scientists.
According to the data derived over a period of ten years (January 1, 1998 - February 29, 2008), a total of 2,127 scientists are among the top one percent of the most cited scientists in the category of Agriculture Sciences, and Prof. Sun is at the top of the list with his ranking of 51.
Professor Da-Wen Sun commented: “I am very pleased with the ranking, as the ESI ranking is based on research output in high-standard international scholarly journals and is globally considered as evidence of their academic excellence. The ranking system provides an authoritative way of comparing performance of researchers not only within the same discipline, but also among different disciplines.
“Such a high ranking is a strong indication of the exceptionally high quality research conducted by UCD researchers as recognised by international peers and can also significantly uplift the international reputation of UCD as a research intensive university,” Prof. Sun added.
Prof. Sun joined UCD in 1995 and has published over 180 peer reviewed journal papers, more than 200 conference papers, and eight edited books. In recognition of his significant contribution to food engineering worldwide and for his outstanding leadership in the field, Prof. Sun was awarded the International Commission of Agricultural Engineering Merit Award in 2000 and 2006, and was named “Food Engineer of the Year 2004” by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
Prof. Sun has also received numerous prestigious awards in UCD, including the UCD President’s Research Fellowship in 2005. He was also awarded membership of the Royal Irish Academy (RIA) on 28 May 2010. This is the highest honour that can be attained by scholars and scientists working in Ireland.
He is Editor-in-Chief of international journal Food and Bioprocess Technology and is Series Editor of the Contemporary Food Engineering book series.

    Aims and Scope


    Food and Bioprocess Technology provides an effective and timely platform for researchers in universities, research institutions, and industries to publish cutting-edge high quality original papers in the engineering and science of all types of processing technologies, involved from the beginning of the food supply source to the dinner table of the consumers. It aims to be a leading international journal for the multidisciplinary agri-food research community.

    The journal is especially interested in experimental or theoretical research findings that have the potential for the agri-food industry to improve process efficiency, enhance product quality and extend the shelf-life of fresh and processed agri-food products. Critical reviews on new perspectives to established processes, innovative and emerging technologies, and trends and future research in food and bioproducts processing are particularly welcome. Short communications for rapidly disseminating preliminary results, letters to the Editor discussing recent developments and controversy, and book reviews will also be published.

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

    • Technologies for ripeness, quality, damage and disease assessment and prediction
    • Grading and classification techniques
    • Postharvest treatments, value-addition, and traceability
    • Agricultural and horticultural products processing technologies
    • Properties of foods and agricultural products
    • Sensors, sensing technology and process control
    • Mathematical modeling and simulation
    • Design and production of novel foods
    • Product monitoring in the supply chain
    • Thermal processing, chilling and freezing
    • Drying technology and dehydration processes
    • Separation and purification processes
    • Non-thermal processing and emerging technologies
    • Preservation, storage, and distribution
    • Packaging and labeling
    • Engineering of food biotechnological processes
    • Engineering for food safety and security
