Our Model

We are working to change the way in which knowledge is produced, validated, and shared within member-based Research Networks.

Intellectual Excellence

Review scores are based on a clearly articulated rubric, and the result is a peer-review process that is scrupulously fair in its assessments, while at the same time offering carefully structured and constructive feedback that enhances the quality of the published article. Each year a top-ranked article from Food Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal receives the International Award for Excellence.

Wide Reach

We are committed to expanding the visibility, reach, and impact of research from the Food Studies Research Network. Journals in Food Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal can be found in numerous databases, accessible via the libraries of institutional subscribers, and in the CG Scholar Bookstore for current Research Network Members.

Participatory Process

We take seriously the “peer” of “peer review.” Decisions of what is published come from reviewers that are Members of the Research Network ensuring the knowledge is validated in horizontal social knowledge relations.


A publishing process that is without prejudice to institutional affiliation, stage in career, national origins, or disciplinary perspectives. If the article is excellent, and has been systematically and independently assessed as such, it will be published.


Authors and reviewers, as Research Network members, gain subscriber access to the journal collection ensuring that the product of their labor is also accessible to them.

Hybrid Open Access

Articles can also be made Hybrid Open Access if authors wish, at a rate that is fair, sustaining open knowledge while balancing the labor of author and publisher.
