JOURNAL OF COMMODITY SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND QUALITY
Journal of Commodity Science publishes original papers in all fields of commodity science and technology of goods production. It was published from 1962 to 1977 as "Quaderni di Merceologia" and from 1978 to 1997 as "Rivista di Merceologia". Journal of Commodity Science will publish both full length and short papers reporting original research which makes a significant contribution to commodity science and technology of goods production. Review articles on themes of topical interest are welcome.
The Journal accepts articles regarding:
- technical evaluation of the quality of goods by means of chemical
and physical analyses in conformity with national and international
regulations, with particular attention to commodity of food products;
- theory and practice of goods: origin, safety and quality;
- a technical and economic analysis of the course of productive
and commercial goods: natural resources and raw materials, technological
cycles of production, product characteristics, problems regarding
discharge and recycling of goods at the end of their production
cycle, environmental impact of production processes, historical
aspects of goods and their commerce, historical aspects of production
- technology and economy of resources and raw materials, closely
connected to energy production;
- problems of customs commodity science in relation to product
commodity characteristics and to laws regulating their international
Manuscripts and enquiries should be directed to:
To submit a manuscript to Journal of Commodity Science send:
The first page of your manuscript should show the title of the paper, names of authors and their affiliations and a short summary. Papers describing conventional experimental work should be set out in the five major sections: Summary, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion. These major sections can be subdivided by up to three or four levels of subheading.
Experimental procedures: A basic assumption is that the paper describes research in sufficient detail for it to be repeatable by the reader. Consequently, all experimental methods should be described briefly, but in sufficient detail to allow the reader to reproduce the experiments. All materials must be available to others. This means that commercial sources must be identified.
Statistical treatment of results: numerical data which lack statistical analysis will be considered valueless. Data from a sufficient number of independent experiments should be reported to permit evaluation of the reproducibility and significance of results. When any significance is claimed, the test of significance used should be stated and an estimate of the probability given. If you use complex statistical transformations a few lines of explanation in plain English of the purpose and the outcome of the test should be provided.
Figures: All figures must be numbered consecutively in one series within the manuscript. This also applies to composite plates or montages, each component of which must be one of the consecutively-numbered figures. Figures should be sized to take up the minimum possible space. Colour photographic illustrations can be included if they are essential to the paper.
Reference citations in text: all reference citations must be cited in numerical order in the text with number in parenthesis on line.
Citations in list: references must be listed numerically
at the end of the article in exactly the style of the examples
shown below or see recent issue of Rivista di Merceologia. It
is necessary to follow Chemical Abstracts for abbreviations
of journal titles.
