Call for Papers: Virtual Special Issue on The Future of Agriculture and Food: Sustainable Approaches to Achieve Zero Hunger

Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, ACS Agricultural Science & Technology, and ACS Food Science & Technology are preparing to publish a joint virtual special issue on “The Future of agriculture and food: sustainable approaches to achieve zero hunger”.

As a global community of researchers, we strive to achieve one of the most critical U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, “Zero Hunger”. Hunger and undernourishment are problems affecting many millions around the world and the problem is now increasing after decades of progress.

ACS has recently launched the Sustainable Futures Initiative. This virtual special issue is designed to raise awareness of the role of agriculture and food in achieving sustainable development goals. It will also support the Sustainable Futures Initiative by highlighting the need for rapid innovation and the development of sustainable production methods.

This joint virtual special issue will be comprised of invited papers and proposed papers from a diverse group of institutions with both senior and junior level scientists. Manuscripts should address advances in food or agricultural research which contribute to more robust, plentiful, nutritional, palatable and sustainable food systems. Original research, review papers and opinion-style viewpoint articles will be considered.

Submission Instructions

Interested authors should send a manuscript proposal including a title, short abstract and manuscript type by email to the Editors at hofmann-office@jafc.acs.org stating whether they intend to submit their manuscript to Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, ACS Agricultural Science & Technology, or ACS Food Science & Technology.

Authors will be sent a link to submit their manuscript directly to the virtual special issue. Any submissions made through ACS Paragon Plus outside of the direct submission link may not be included in the joint virtual special issue.

Manuscripts must adhere to the guidelines available on the journal’s Information for Authors page.

All invited and contributed manuscripts will be screened for suitability upon submission and undergo the standard peer-review procedure of the journal. The final submission deadline for inclusion in the virtual special issue is January 31, 2023.
