What is the EFSA Journal?

The EFSA Journal is an open-access online scientific journal containing all of the Authority’s previously published scientific outputs from EFSA’s wide body of scientific work, covering food and feed safety, nutrition, animal health and welfare, plant health and plant protection. Available free of charge, it can be found on a dedicated part of the EFSA website. Each issue contains the scientific outputs published by EFSA in a given month. For the most recently published outputs, consult the ‘Just published’ section. For all EFSA scientific outputs published in the previous month, visit the ‘Latest issue’. EFSA’s scientific outputs published since its inception can be found in the section ‘All issues’. The section ‘About the Journal’ provides information on the Journal’s editorial policy, the Editorial Board and how to subscribe.

The Journal neither accepts nor commissions third party content at present.

Why was the EFSA Journal created?

The EFSA Journal was created to raise the Authority’s scientific visibility, and acknowledge the work of EFSA’s experts in Scientific Panels and Working Groups more clearly with their peers and wider scientific audiences internationally. By now housing the Journal in one dedicated web space, EFSA has made the scientific outputs are even more accessible than before.

Over time EFSA will further develop the Journal and bring in new functions and tools.
