International Journal on Food System Dynamics

Journal Homepage Image

An international peer-reviewed scientific journal with a multi-disciplinary focus on a foundation in socio-economic, policy, management, organization, and consumer research.

The International Journal on Food System Dynamics publishes research on the analysis, organization, management, operation, and strategic development of the food system and its actors and dependants (enterprises, chains, networks, institutions, policy, and consumers). Challenges of social, economic and environmental sustainability in a world of increasing instability and decreasing production base challenge the system's ability to serving consumers on a global scale with food that is readily available, affordable and of the quality, safety, and diversity they do expect. This requires new dynamics in the system, innovative developments, and research that provides the necessary support. To this end, scientific articles are complemented by sections providing a platform for case studies and a research forum. The Journal is published only as an electronic journal. Citation information is provided with the individual publications.
