More frequent JFS content coming in 2012
Beginning in January 2012, the Journal of Food Science will publish monthly online issues (12 issues/volume year), an increase from nine issues per year.

In response to declining print subscriptions and an increasing volume of content, the journal will publish print issues quarterly (four issues/volume year), which will include all content published in the three monthly issues within that particular quarter.

Both print and online publications will continue to be identical in content through the volume year, and will differ only in frequency. Print-only JFS subscribers who subscribe or renew in 2011 will automatically be converted in 2012 to print + online subscriptions, to ensure that they will continue to have access to JFS research as soon as it is published. As of Jan. 1, 2012, new or renewing subscribers will have the option to receive JFS online-only or print + online subscriptions.

With this change, JFS subscribers will not only receive JFS content more frequently, but also will have early online access to articles as well as access to the supplemental content and enhanced features such as pop-up tables and figures that most authors currently include with their articles. Subscribers will also be able to access the full journal archive dating back to Volume 1, 1936, for reference purposes.

We hope that you share our enthusiasm about these exciting changes. For more information, contact Amanda Ferguson, Manager, IFT Scientific Journals, at [email protected].
