Since the first issue was published in December of 2013, four regular issues have been regularly published on J-STAGE in March, June, September, and December of each year. This journal is assigned to Digital Object Identifier (DOI)-Cross Reference. I greatly appreciate the authors, reviewers, and editorial board members for their enthusiastic and continued support for the publication. All the peer-reviewed articles in this ten-year period have been submitted from Europe and the USA as well as Japan in line with our international journal policy. We look forward to receiving manuscripts within the scope of this journal from all around the world. Manuscripts presented at symposium or congress meetings are welcome to be published as original or review articles. The future success of our journal depends on authors of peer-reviewed articles. We are particularly grateful to the contributors for supporting the publication of the journal, which will advance the development of science and technology for food safety.
