The Journal of Stored Products Research provides an international medium for the publication of both reviews and original results from laboratory and field research on all aspects of the preservation and safety of stored products along the supply chain starting from production to the consumer. The scope covers both durable commodities, and fresh fruits, vegetables, and freshly manufactured foodstuffs. Durable commodities are characterized by having relatively low moisture content and include raw and semi-processed foods such as grains, dried fruits, and animal feed, and other stored products such as timber, rubber, resins, clothing, and museum artefacts that are generally suitable for long-term storage. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and freshly manufactured foodstuffs (eg. bakery, sausages), are characterized by having high moisture contents but are stored over short to medium-term storage.


Manuscripts are welcomed on:

the biology, ecology, physiology, behaviour, taxonomy, and genetics of vertebrates (eg. rodents and birds) and invertebrate pests (eg. insects, mites) and microbial spoilage agents (eg. fungi, mold, yeast, and bacteria)

environmental factors influencing the life cycles of the above-listed storage pests and spoilage agents

the physical, chemical, and biological control of pests and spoilage agents, including the use of biologically producing compounds as preservatives with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activities

submission of manuscripts containing research on plant materials/botanicals are encouraged only if significant applied aspects are undertaken demonstrating their detailed chemical composition and long-term efficacy in the laboratory, supported by field application and the use of suitable controls: both negative/blank and positive (i.e., a compound of known activity)

development of biochemical or behavioural resistance in pests to control measures and their management

storage biotechnology, integrated pest management, and decision support systems

the effects of physical, chemical, and environmental control procedures on the physical and chemical nature, besides quality parameters of the stored commodities

the assessment, prevention, and control of physical losses and preservation of quality of commodities during storage, and waste management

regulatory, technological, and socio-economic subjects relevant to stored products

Novel approaches in postharvest food engineering and manufacturing technologies, (eg. AI tools, chemical sensors, gas detectors) in processing, packaging, and design and modifications of storage structures



The Journal of Stored Products Research reflects the worldwide interest in finding researched-based solutions for problems arising from the process of storage directly affecting the quality of stored products and their relevance to food security and safety, commodity protection, and their market access and trade.
