FSTA is the key resource for searching over sixty years of research in the sciences of food and health. This includes food science, nutrition, agriculture, biotechnology, metabolomics, and many other disciplines. This abstracting and indexing database contains over 1.5 million records from authoritative sources, including journals, conference proceedings and patents. Scientists, students, and information professionals worldwide use FSTA for their research.

8 June 2020, Reading, UK - IFIS Publishing and Molecular Connections have combined their expertise to develop a publisher-neutral journal selection service to help food and health scientists with this vital step in the publication process.
Choosing the right journal for an article submission is challenging. There are many factors to take into consideration – not least scope, quality, metrics and access options. Poor selection leads to a risk of rejection and wasted time and resource.
The IFIS and Molecular Connections' 'Journal Recommendation Service' (JRS) uses proposed abstracts and manuscript titles to identify appropriate journals through artificial intelligence (AI) (more information). The JRS returns a list of matching journals, along with links to the journal, submission pages, editorial board and three recent abstracts. Options are available to filter by Publisher, Country, Open Access options and more.
This interactive course is built around a core of necessary key research skills, such as defining your research question and creating a search strategy, and includes six short quizzes for self-assessment.
For librarians and faculty teaching information literacy skills, this great free resource is designed to be added to your own learning management system (LMS).
