First Look on SSRN
First Look on SSRN is a place where journals identify and share content of interest prior to publication. First Look is a partnership between SSRN and some of the world’s most influential journals to provide rapid, early, and open access to evolving scholarly research. The early stage research shared can include preprints, accepted papers and papers under consideration.
Interested in your journal being seen as a pioneer for new research? Check out our First Look program to share your newest latest research with a wider audience faster than ever before.

Food Microbiology publishes original research articles, short research communications, and review papers dealing with all aspects of the microbiology of foods. The editors aim to publish manuscripts of the highest quality which are both relevant and applicable to the broad field covered by the journal. Studies must be novel and have a clear connection to the microbiology of foods or food production environments. The microbiological aspects of all stages of food production, from pre- to post-harvest and throughout processing and preparation, are of interest. Studies should be of general interest to the international community of food microbiologists. The editors make every effort to ensure rapid and fair reviews, resulting in timely publication of accepted manuscripts.
Food packaging plays a vital role in preserving food throughout the distribution chain. Without packaging, the processing of food can become compromised as it is contaminated by direct contact with physical, chemical, and biological contaminants. In recent years, the development of novel food packaging (modified atmosphere & active packaging) has not only increased the shelf life of foods, but also their safety and quality - therefore bringing convenience to consumers. Directly related, and interlinked, with food packaging is the concept of shelf life - the length of time that foods, beverages, pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals, and many other perishable items are given before they are considered unsuitable for sale, use, or consumption.
Food Structure is the premier international forum devoted to the publication of high-quality articles related to food structure and functionality. All articles must highlight the significance of the research findings for the food science community and/or industry.
