The Food Science and Biotechnology (Food Sci. Biotechnol.; FSB), an international journal published monthly by the Korean Society of Food Science and Technology (KoSFoST), provides results of original research on the physical, chemical, biological, and health aspects of food science and technology, and a review related to food science and biotechnology. FSB has been covered in Current Contents and Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) from 2003. FSB has been also indexed by SCOPUS from September, 2008. Submission of Manuscript FSB operates an on-line submission system. Details of how to submit online and full author instructions can be found at: http://www.fsnb.or.kr/. All manuscripts are subject to double-blinded peer review for the validity of the experimental design and results, significance, and appropriateness for the FSB.

Typically, 2 reviewers are assigned to review each article. Review process is handled by responsible editor for each manuscript. The author will be informed the final decision by the Editor-in-Chief. Papers in a series are not accepted. Membership in KoSFoST is not a prerequisite for submission of manuscript for publication.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
