Bioactive Compounds in Health and Disease
Bioactive Compounds in Health and Disease (BCHD) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal. This journal focuses on bioactive compounds related to health and disease including topics from various fields of science. The journal is an excellent resource for students, professors, public health professionals, medical doctors, dieticians, nutritionists, and the general public for information regarding the latest advancements for promoting optimal health, reducing the risk of chronic/viral diseases, and managing their symptoms using bioactive compounds.
When we investigate bioactive compounds from the perspective of functional foods, these compounds are defined as the following: "food bioactive compounds are primary and secondary metabolites of nutritive and non-nutritive natural components generating health benefits by reducing the risk of chronic and viral diseases and managing their symptoms." The main goal of this journal is to develop research in order to better understand bioactive compounds and how they can help manage the symptoms of chronic and viral diseases.
In October 2021, BCHD was accepted into the Scopus indexing database. All past and future articles will now be indexed in Scopus.

Functional Food Science
The Functional Food Science (FFS) journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access international journal which serves as the journal of the Academic Society for Functional Foods and Bioactive Compounds (ASFFBC). The journal’s overall focus is on Functional Food Science, which is a new and unique area of health and nutrition. Although currently a small scientific field, Functional Food Science is quickly expanding as studies show that functional food products can help manage chronic disease and promote overall wellness. This is reflected in our journal’s rapidly growing citation score.
The articles we publish include cutting-edge biomedical research and development of functional foods. The goal is to provide research that can lead to the development of functional food products. The actual definition for these functional foods, as provided by the Functional Food Center (FFC) is as follows: “Natural or processed foods that contain biologically-active compounds, which, in defined, effective, non-toxic amounts, provide a clinically proven and documented health benefit utilizing specific biomarkers, to promote optimal health and reduce the risk of chronic/viral diseases and manage their symptoms."
The journal also serves as an excellent resource for students, professors, public health professionals, medical doctors, dieticians, nutritionists, government representatives (FDA, NIH, USDA), and the general public for information regarding the latest advancements for promoting optimal health, reducing the risk of chronic and viral diseases, and managing their symptoms using functional foods and bioactive compounds including antioxidants, vitamins and many more.
The FFS journal had its first issue published in August of 2021.
