Food Science and Technology

Merit Research Journals of Food Science and Technology (MRJFST) (ISSN: 2354-2527), a purpose driven journal organization, was sprung into actions for two reasons: To publish excellent and unprecedented researches that are in line with the interest of our journals. Secondly, to create avenue for exploration, ravaging and manifestation of the world of knowledge, and to disseminate the articles freely for teaching and reference purposes, especially for researchers and teachers in developing nations.  

The establishment of this Journal, Merit Research Journals of Food Science and Technology (MRJFST) is an answer to the wishes and desires of many researchers and teachers in developing nations especially in Africa and Asia who lack free access to quality materials online. This Journal opts to bring panacea to this problem, and to encourage research development.

Merit Research Journals of Food Science and Technology (MRJFST) aims at establishing a publishing house that is open to all. It aims to disseminate knowledge; provide a learned reference in the field; and establish channels of communication between academic and research experts, policy makers and executives in industry, commerce and investment institutions.


To bring the highest quality research to the widest possible audience. All the journals from this organization will be freely distributed and available from multiple websites.


To bring the largest pool of OPEN ACCESS Journals with a bias for African and Asian subjects, publishing over 200 journals by 2030.


Open Access is a publication model that enables the dissemination of research findings to the global community without restriction. Thus, all articles published under open access can be accessed by anyone with internet connection.


It is the vision of Merit Research Journals of Food Science and Technology (MRJFST) to support the Open Access initiative. All journals by Merit Research Journals of Food Science and Technology (MRJFST) are published without restriction to the global community. We strongly believe that the open access model will spur researches across the world especially in developing nations as researchers gain unrestricted access to high quality research articles.

It is the policy of Merit Research Journals of Food Science and Technology (MRJFST) not to request for grants for its operations as grants sometimes fail forcing the organization to discontinue its operations. Rather we have chosen the model of self sustenance through collecting processing fee for articles published.  

Authors are required to make payment only after their articles have been accepted. Thus, we resulted to collecting the processing fee once an article has been reviewed and accepted for publication by an editor.

There are no financial reward for reviewers and editors of the various journals. These positions are purely voluntary.


Merit Research Journals of Food Science and Technology (MRJFST) is a self supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution / government. Hence, the operation of the journal is solely financed by the processing fees received from authors. The processing fees are required to meet operations expenses such as employees’ salaries, internet services, electricity etc. Being an Open Access Publisher, Merit Research Journals does not receive payment for subscription as the journals are freely accessible over the internet.  

It costs money to produce a peer-reviewed, edited, and formatted article that is ready for online publication, and to host it on a server that is freely accessible without barriers around the clock. We ask that - as a small part of the cost of doing the research--the author, institution, or funding agency pays a modest fee to help cover the actual cost of the essential final step, the publication.
