GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS

The journal Food and Feed Research publishes original papers that have not been published previously (peer-reviewed original articles, short communications, case reports, review articles). Food and Feed Research is an Open Access journal.

Contributions to journal shall be submitted in English language, with summaries in English and Serbian (for non-Serbian authors translation will be provided by the editorial staff). Food and Feed Research has no restrictions on the length of manuscripts, provided that the text is concise and comprehensive.

Article types

Original research papers report results of original scientific studies. The material should not have been previously published. The journal considers all original research manuscripts provided that the work reports scientifically sound experiments and brings a sufficient amount of new information to the field. Experimental procedures should be presented in sufficient detail to enable verification of the data. The manuscript should provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation and proper discussion. Quality and impact of the material will be considered during peer review.

Review articles are up-to-date, critical but constructive and conclusive summary and discussion of the relevant literature concerning any subject falling within the scope of the journal, which is of active current interest. Reviews should be accompanied by an abstract and references must conform to the journal’s style.

Short communication is a brief report of scientifically sound research, but of limited scope, that contributes new knowledge, ideas, findings that are expected to have a significant impact on a current problem. It is suitable for presenting important preliminary research findings or recording the results of complete small investigations, which will not be included in a later paper. It is also appropriate for the presentation of research that extends previously published research, provided that the previous work is clearly acknowledged.

Case reports are descriptive studies on an authentic case or case series observed from laboratory/clinical practice that have scientific value and represent at least incremental knowledge in the field within the scope of the journal.  They may describe novel techniques or use of equipment, or new information on diseases of importance. Especially welcome are reports on unusual, unexpected or rare scientific observations. Case reports must be brief but well-described with main components such as Introduction, Case report, Discussion, Conclusion and References.

Previous paper versions. Papers previously reported at a congress, symposium, workshop etc. will be also considered for publishing (under the same or different title) if they have not been published in proceedings as full papers. A note about the paper presentation at a relevant conference should be made in the footer of the first page.

Submission guidelines

Manuscripts are submitted online via online management system Aseestant.

Each publication cited in the text must be listed in References. The parenthetical and in-text citations need to be arranged in the following way:

If there is only one author of the cited paper, the author's surname and the year of publication is stated in the brackets (Thomas, 2008). In case the same author has more publications in the same year, additional letters are added next to the year (Thomas, 2008a; Thomas, 2008b).

If there are two authors of the publication, surnames of authors and year of publication is written in the brackets (Thomas & Fenwick, 2008).

In the case of 3-5 authors, include all names in the first appearance in text citation (Smith, Jones, Brown & Harris, 2009) whereas in subsequent text appearances include only the first author's name followed by “et al.” and the date (Smith et al., 2009). If there are six or more authors, the surname of the first author is stated in the brackets, followed by abbreviation “et al.“ and year of publication (Thomas et al., 2008).

If more references are cited within the same brackets, citations should be done in chronological order.

In narrative citations, the author name is incorporated into the text as part of the sentence and the year follows in parentheses (Example: Koehler (2016) noted the dangers of falsely balanced news coverage.). In case of multiple authors, use word “and” in the narrative of the paper (Example: Thomas and Fenwick (2008) argued that…).

Abstract in Serbian should be written after the References and typed in Serbian (Cyrillic), Times New Roman font 10 pt, with the title (in uppercase bold letters), full name(s), middle initial(s) and surname(s), and affiliation of author(s). Key words should be given below the abstract. Note: For Serbian language non-speaking authors, abstract in Serbian will be provided by the Editorial office.
