OCL Journal: Quick Feedback

As you know, OCL journal is a not-for-profit, peer-reviewed, full Open-Access scientific journal devoted to fats, lipids and oil- and protein-crops.

OCL covers the entire sector. The research papers and reviews published 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.

In 2013, the decision was taken to relaunch the French journal OCL as an international publication: its title was therefore anglicized to OCL-Oilseeds and fats, Crops and Lipids. Today, we have achieved the goals we set for ourselves in 2013:

  • the proportion of articles published in English has been rising steadily, to reach 100% in 2021;
  • the strict peer-review policy to ensure high-standard articles has been enhanced (in 2021, only slightly more than 40% of the articles submitted were accepted);
  • OCL metrics have been increasing steadily, reaching the 2nd quartile in 2017 (agronomy section) and getting now very close from Q1 according to the Scopus Index.
