International Journal of Food Contamination

Share this on social media:

Springer’s open-access programme, SpringerOpen, has launched the International Journal of Food Contamination to examine incidents of food contamination around the world.
The International Journal of Food Contamination aims to explore emerging and existing hazards to the safety of food, and their raw materials, for both human and animal consumption. Bacterial pathogens and bacterial toxins, viruses, contaminants from food-contact materials and residues of pesticides and veterinary drugs, among others, are all part of the scope of the journal.
Commentary, database information, editorials, data articles , short reports and reviews will all be a part of the International Journal of Food Contamination. These articles should give scientists worldwide a resource to reference for the purposes of risk analysis, to review and evaluate the sampling schemes used by  food authorities and food producers, and to follow and model global food-contamination patterns, among others.
