In order to meet content needs in food science and safety, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of food scientists and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.
