  • Review Articles (2000-8000 words; peer-reviewed)
    Review articles do not cover original research but rather accumulate the results of many different articles on a particular topic into a coherent narrative about state of the art in the emerging field of food, nutrition, and culinary. Review articles provide information about the topic and also provide journal references to the original research.
