Ethical Guideline


The manuscripts submitted for publication must be previously unpublished research works written in Korean or English, which are not being considered for publication elsewhere. All the authors must have agreed to the submission and to the order of their names on the title page. They must also have agreed that the corresponding author may act on their behalf throughout the editorial review and publication process. The corresponding author is responsible for obtaining such agreement.

Research and publication ethics

Research published in Food Eng. Prog. must follow institutional, national, and international guidelines. For policies on research and publication ethics that are not stated in these instructions, the "Guidelines on Good Publication Practice (" can be applied.

- Authorship
An author is defined as one who has made a significant contribution to the overall design and execution of the experiments; therefore, Food Eng. Prog. deems all authors responsible for the entire paper. Assistants should be listed as authors, but may be recognized in the Acknowledgements section.
- Originality and Duplicate Publication
All submitted manuscripts should be original and should not be submitted to other scientific journals for consideration while under Food Eng. Prog. review. No part of the accepted manuscript should be duplicated in other scientific journals without the permission of the Editorial Board. If duplicate publication related to the papers of this journal is detected, the authors will be announced in this journal, their institutes will be informed, and they will be penalized.
- Conflict of Interest Statement
Authors should disclose any conflicts of interest in the manuscript.

Editorial review and revision

All papers will be critically read by at least two anonymous reviewers, selected for their competence in the subject area of the paper. Acceptance of the paper will depend upon its scientific merit and suitability for the journal. A paper may be accepted in its original form or subject to revision. The reviewers' (and editor's) suggestions will be conveyed to the author, who will then have an opportunity to revise the paper. Manuscripts written by authors who are unsure of proper English usage should be checked by someone proficient in the English language before submission. Manuscripts failing to meet the standards or poorly written or formatted are editorially rejected without further review.


Galley proofs in PDF format for an accepted article will be sent by e-mail to the corresponding author for the correction of any printer's or editorial errors, not for addition of new material or revision of the text. Excessive alteration of an article is not allowed during galley proof reading. Significant changes to the article as accepted for publication will only be considered at this stage with permission from the Editor. The proofs should be corrected and mailed to the Editorial Office within 72 h.

Article processing charge

A page charge is effective for all manuscripts on original research. An invited review article is exempt from page charges, provided it is approved in advance by the Editor-in-Chief. The actual charge per printed page will be notified to the author along with the manuscript for galley proofs. The publication fee is KRW 50,000 per printed page plus KRW 40,000 as review fee.


Free reprint copies of the published article will not be provided to the corresponding author. Authors may purchase reprints by requesting when manuscript is accepted. An order form with prices will be sent with proofs to the corresponding author.
