FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Personnel from the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Center for Food Safety are serving in key editorial positions for the new Agriculture, Food and Analytical Bacteriology journal. The journal, available in print and online, is a peer-reviewed scientific forum for the latest advancements in bacteriology research on a wide range of topics including food safety, food microbiology, gut microbiology, biofuels, bioremediation, environmental microbiology, fermentation, probiotics, and veterinary microbiology.

Steven Ricke, director of the Center for Food Safety, is editor-in-chief of the journal as well as part owner and publisher. Phillip Crandall, professor of food science, is an editor. Ellen J. Van Loo, a graduate student in food science, is managing editor. Members of the editorial board include Michael Johnson, professor emeritus of food science, and Young Min Kwon, associate professor of poultry science.
