As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Featured article: A glance at one decade of water pollution research in Iranian environmental health journals

Due to the importance of water, the negative effects of water pollution on human health and the lack of proper knowledge of the state of research in this regard, the purpose of this study was to analyse scientific publications on water pollution in Iranian journals of environmental health.

Aims and scope

The International Journal of Food Contamination publishes baseline, monitoring data, indicating the qualitative and quantitative presence of microbiological and chemical contaminants in foods, animal feed, and their raw materials. For primary production, only data related to agricultural commodities used for food or feed production are eligible for publication.

There are no restrictions on classes of contaminants, and the scope includes both established and emerging hazards, e.g. bacterial pathogens and bacterial toxins, products of microbial activity (such as biogenic amines), viruses, fungi and mycotoxins, marine biotoxins, plant toxins, process and environmental contaminants, migration contaminants from food contact materials, and residues of pesticides and veterinary drugs found in raw materials, food and feed.
