Journal of Food Science EducationAccess: Journal of Food Science Education 

The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) publishes the Journal of Food Science Education (JFSE) to serve the interest of its members in the field of food science education at all levels. The journal is aimed at all those committed to the improvement of food science education, including primary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate, continuing, and workplace education. It serves as an international forum for scholarly and innovative development in all aspects of food science education for "teachers" (individuals who facilitate, mentor, or instruct) and "students" (individuals who are the focus of learning efforts). The range of topics covered in the journal include:

  • Problem-based learning and innovative learning techniques
  • Development of teachers and students
  • Forms of motivation and their promotion
  • Innovative laboratory exercises, community-based, work-place, and continuing education
  • Interpersonal and human relationship development of students
