Aims and Scope

Journal of Food and Bioprocess Engineering (JFBE) is a fee-free open access international journal of Department of Food Science and Engineering, University of Tehran. This semiannually publishes peer-reviewed research papers and reviews in all branches of science, technology, biotechnology and engineering of foods and food products with a special emphasis on:

  • Bioprocess modelling and optimization;
  • Separation and bioseparation;
  • Fermentation;
  • Bioreactor design, instrumentation and control;
  • Microbial physiology and engineering metabolic;
  • Production formulation;
  • Sterile processing;
  • Functional fermented foods or ingredients;
  • Nanotechnology and nanobiotechnology;
  • Engineering for food safety;
  • Environmental issues in food manufacture;
  • Minimal processing techniques;
  • Packaging;
  • Plant, process and product design;
  • Processing and microstructure interactions;
  • Unit operations, process modelling and optimization in food engineering;
  • Effect of different processes on the functional properties of foods or drinks;
  • Non-thermal processes;
  • Process analytical technology (PAT).

All articles will be initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles.
