How to publish in this journal


The Brazilian Journal of Food Technology (BJFT) is an electronic rolling pass publication with free access, whose purpose is to publish unpublished articles based on original research results and technological information that significantly contribute to the dissemination of new knowledge related to production and evaluation of food in the areas of science, technology, food engineering and nutrition (non-clinical). Manuscripts of national or international scope are accepted, presenting new concepts or experimental approaches that are not only repositories of scientific data. The Journal publishes original articles, review articles, scientific notes, case reports, and short communication in Portuguese and English. The submission of a manuscript presupposes that the same paper is not under analysis for publication in any other divulging vehicle. Articles specifically contemplating analytical methodologies will be accepted as long as they are innovative or provide significant improvement to existing methods. It is at the discretion of the Editors, depending on the subject relevance, the acceptance of works with test results of industrialized products without the information necessary to manufacture them. Papers aimed essentially at commercial propaganda will not be accepted. Join the conversation about this journal

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
