Celebrating the Top Downloads from 2013

Celebrating the International Journal of Food Science and Technology 2013 most popular downloaded articles published in 2012 and 2013

2013 was a remarkable year in terms of submissions received by the International Journal of food Science and Technology and also the overall downloads of articles from our web cite, both of which were higher than in any of our previous years. The increased popularity of the journal has been achieved by the dedication of our authors for the production of high quality, innovative research. In order to celebrate our success the 10 most popular downloaded articles published between 2012-13 have been published online in the Most Downloaded Articles Special Feature. As a special thanks to these authors these articles are being made free to access until the end of April.

Congratulations, and I look forward to submissions describing pioneering research from respected and up and coming scientists throughout 2014 to continue the growth and development of the International Journal of Food Science and technology.

Kind regards,
