Cereal Chemistry Focus Issue on Proteins from Grains

Proteins from Grains is the theme for the 2022 Focus Issue of Cereal Chemistry. The trend of increased plant protein utilization by the food industry supports the need for this focus issue. Furthermore, this theme recognizes the increasing interest in incorporating more plant proteins in the human diet, driven by concerns about health, the environment, animal welfare, and that animal protein may be a limited resource.
We invite submissions that will contribute significant advances on the science, nutrition, products and applications, environmental sustainability, and other relevant aspects of proteins from cereal, pulses, and specialty grains. 

The Focus Issue Guest Editors are Clifford Hall, South Dakota State University, and Michael Nickerson, University of Saskatchewan.

Submissions may be in the form of Reviews, Mini-Reviews, Research Articles, Notes, and Views & Opinions according to the Author Guidelines for Cereal Chemistry.

Submitted manuscripts will go through the normal process of peer-review for Cereal Chemistry and must meet the scope and quality standards of the journal. The Focus Issue will be published in January 2022, but papers will be published online as soon as they are accepted. There are no page fees for the first 8 pages (typically 5,000 words). Manuscripts must be submitted to the Cereal Chemistry ScholarOne site. ​

Submission Deadline: 31 July 2021

I look forward to reading your research!
