This is a positive move towards reducing the environmental impact caused by the production and distribution of printed journal copies. Published articles will continue to be disseminated quickly through the journal’s broad network of indexing services, including ISI, MEDLINE and Scopus. Articles will also continue to be discoverable through popular search engines such as Google. All color images will now be published free of charge.

Papers should address new developments in sensory methods, consumer and product acceptability studies, or the psychology of human sensory responses while focusing on both theoretical and practical problems on applications of sensory science and their possible approaches to problem resolution, external and internal validity of research guidance panel, descriptive analysis, word meaning/semantic differential technique as applied to sensory science, product category appraisal, philosophies, or controversies in sensory science.

Early View The Journal of Sensory Studies is covered by Wiley's Early View service. Early View articles are complete full-text articles published online in advance of their publication in an issue. Articles are therefore available as soon as they are ready, rather than having to wait for the next scheduled issue. Early View articles are complete and final. They have been fully reviewed, revised and edited for publication, and the authors’ final corrections have been incorporated. Because they are in final form, no changes can be made after online publication. The nature of Early View articles means that they do not yet have volume, issue or page numbers, so Early View articles cannot be cited in the traditional way. They are therefore given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the article to be cited and tracked before it is allocated to an issue. After issue publication, the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article.
Referrals to the Open Access Journal Food Science & Nutrition. This journal works together with Wiley’s open access journal, Food Science & Nutrition, to enable rapid publication of good quality research that is unable to be accepted for publication by our journal. Authors will be offered the option of having the paper, along with any related peer reviews, automatically transferred for consideration by the Editor of Food Science & Nutrition. Authors will not need to reformat or rewrite their manuscript at this stage, and publication decisions will be made a short time after the transfer takes place. The Editor of Food Science & Nutrition will accept submissions that report well-conducted research which reaches the standard acceptable for publication. Accepted papers can be published rapidly, typically within 20 days of acceptance. Food Science & Nutrition is a Wiley Open Access journal and article publication fees apply. For more information, please go to www.foodscience-nutrition.com.
Self-Archiving Policy. Authors of articles published in Wiley journals are permitted to self-archive the submitted (preprint) version of the article at any time, and may self-archive the accepted (peer-reviewed) version after an embargo period. Please visit our Self-Archiving Policy page for details or refer to your Copyright Transfer Agreement.
