Open access

I found that International Journal of Food Science is an open access journal.

This journal is published by Hindawi Publishing Corporation from New York, USA, and Nasr City, Egypt.

The aims and scope of this journal is “International Journal of Food Science is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of food science”.

This journal offers the free full text of all their published articles to all readers around the world. The readers who are interested in the articles can even download and distribute the article to someone else for free. This free version promotes the popularity of their published articles by giving more convenient access to potential readers. The value of the published journal is increased since more people easily read the articles compared to the non-open access journals.

The journal will charge 600 dollars (Article Processing Charges) on the authors for one manuscript of research article or review article once the manuscript is selected to be published. Kindly, the journal will not charge the authors from low income countries, whose gross domestic product of less than 200 billion US dollars. Additionally, the authors belong to an institute, which is a member of Hindawi institutional membership program, will not be charged of the Article Processing Charges. But the copyright of the published articles is still belong to the authors. Others who want to cite the articles should also give credits to the authors, and cite properly.
