Packaging Technology & Science publishes original research, applications and review papers describing significant, novel developments in its field.

The Journal welcomes contributions in a wide range of areas in packaging technology and science, including:

  • Active packaging
  • Aseptic and sterile packaging
  • Barrier packaging
  • Design methodology
  • Environmental factors and sustainability
  • Ergonomics
  • Food packaging
  • Machinery and engineering for packaging
  • Marketing aspects of packaging
  • Materials
  • Migration
  • New manufacturing processes and techniques
  • Testing, analysis and quality control
  • Transport packaging

Topics may relate to the packaging of: foods; fragile and high value goods; medical and pharmaceutical products; high volume consumer goods; chemicals and hazardous materials.

It is emphasized that the above is by no means an exhaustive list.

The journal publishes full-length papers, which should not normally exceed 10,000 words, and short communications, which can be at most 2500 words with three tables or illustrations. Two-part papers will not be considered.

The journal has specific editorial policies and requirements concerning mathematical models, new materials (including bio-polymers and anti-microbial treatments), direct food coatings, distribution environmental data and research on the packaging of specific products. These requirements are set out in the Authors’ Check-List: papers failing to meet these requirements will not be considered.

Please note this journal does not cover the microencapsulation (packaging) of electronic circuits and devices.
