Research Topics
Research Topic is an innovative academic concept focusing on the hottest areas in academia, here gathered a variety of current research active areas and issues. You can browse the topics you are interested in and offer new topics for others.
Science Publishing Group Research Topic showcases your research area and contributes to the communication of academic information. If you have a new topic, please download the form and send it to us.
Research Topic #1
Plant nutrition
Plant nutrition is the study of the chemical elements and compounds necessary for plant growth, plant metabolism and their external supply. The essential plant nutrients include carbon, oxygen and hydrogen which are absorbed from the air, whereas other nutrients including nitrogen are typically obtained from the soil. Plants must obtain the following mineral nutrients from their growing medium: the macronutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, sulfur, magnesium, sodium the micronutrients: boron, chlorine , manganese, iron, zinc, copper, molybdenum, nickel. and cobalt.
Research Topic #2
Animal nutrition
Animal nutrition focuses on the dietary needs of domesticated animals, primarily those in agriculture and food production. There are seven major classes of nutrients: carbohydrates, fats, fibre, minerals, protein, vitamin, and water. The macronutrients (excluding fiber and water) provide structural material and energy. Some of the structural material can be used to generate energy internally, and in either case it is measured in joules or calories.
Research Topic #3
Healthy diet
A healthy diet is one that helps to maintain or improve overall health. A healthy diet provides the body with essential nutrition: fluid, adequate essential amino acids from protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and adequate calories. The requirements for a healthy diet can be met from a variety of plant-based and animal-based foods. A healthy diet supports energy needs and provides for human nutrition without exposure to toxicity or excessive weight gain from consuming excessive amounts.
Research Topic #4
Food and Bioprocess Technology
Food and Bioprocess Technology are foods produced from organisms that have had changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. Genetic engineering techniques allow for the introduction of new traits as well as greater control over traits than previous methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding.
Research Topic #5
Food manufacture
Food manufacturing is the process by which food is manufactured. It is the transformation of raw ingredients, by physical or chemical means into food, or of food into other forms. Food manufacturing combines raw food ingredients to produce marketable food products that can be easily prepared and served by the consumer. Food manufacturing typically involves activities such as mincing and macerating, liquefaction, emulsification, and cooking; pickling, pasteurization, and many other kinds of preservation; and canning or other packaging.
Research Topic #6
Food safety
Food safety is a scientific discipline describing handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent foodborne illnes. In considering industry to market practices, food safety considerations include the origins of food including the practices relating to food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, as well as policies on biotechnology and food and guidelines for the management of governmental import and export inspection and certification systems for foods.
Special Issues
Special Issue is an effective way for researchers to focus on a hot topic for an in-depth study. If you have a great topic or idea, you can propose a Special Issue and you will have the opportunity to be the Lead Guest Editor of the Special Issue.
