Aims and scope

OCL is a peer-reviewed full Open-Access scientific journal devoted to fats and lipids

Published bimonthly, OCL covers the entire sector.

The research papers and reviews published in each issue address a range of topical matters in agronomy, plant biology, biochemistry, analytical chemistry, lipid chemistry, as well as transversal research themes such as nutrition, the health-quality-food safety nexus, innovation and industrial processes, the environment and sustainable development, economics and social development.

A particular feature of OCL is the inclusion in each issue of a special thematic section focusing on a topical subject among the Journal's core domains. Invited contributors to these thematic sections are chosen with care in order to ensure the expression of a genuine cross-section of interests and expertise.
