Different models of scientific communication are becoming more universal and the opportunities of publishing are more numerous and sophisticated. This study analyzed the category "Food Science & Technology" in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database to determine how many journals are currently in it, how many journals are in several scientific categories, how many journals are published by commercial and by non-commercial publishers, what are the publishing models of each journal, journal impact factor (IF) and quartile - Q. The analysis of the publishing models and quartiles in which the journal is located showed that IF and the reputation of the journal are more important to scientists for publishing the results than the publishing policy. The interdisciplinarity of the field was determined through different WoS categories because the journals were included in 25 other categories in addition to the “Food Science & Technology” category.
