About the Editors

Seid Jafari

Seid Jafari Editor

Prof. Seid Mahdi Jafari received his PhD from the University of Queensland, Australia, in 2006. He has been working on nanoencapsulation of food bioactives for the past 15 years. Now, as a full professor, he is an academic member of GUASNR, Iran. He has published more than 200 papers (h-index=43 and 50, in Scopus and Google Scholar, respectively) in top-ranked international journals and 35 book chapters along with editing 36 books. In Nov. 2015, he was awarded as one of the top 1% world’s scientists by Thomson Reuters (Essential Scientific Indicators) in the field of Biological Sciences. Also in December 2017, he was selected as one of the top national researchers by the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology. Recently in Nov. 2018, and Nov. 2019 he was awarded as one of the world’s highly cited researchers by Clarivate Analytics (Web of Science); and top reviewer in the field of agricultural and biological sciences selected by Publons (Sep. 2018, and Sep. 2019).
