Quality of Life publishes original research papers and reviews and aims to provide a forum for the rapid dissemination of significant novel research in the various disciplines encompassing the Science and Technology of Food, Public health engineering, Sanitary inspection and control, Environmental and Public Health.

Quality of Life publishes original scientific papers, preliminary communications, professional papers, scientific notes and reviews:
Original scientific papers report unpublished results of original research. They must contain significant and original observations to be critically evaluated. Experimental data should be presented in a way that enables reproduction and verification of analyses and deductions on which the conclusions are based.
Preliminary communications include short information on the results of scientific research which require immediate publication.
Scientific notes include reports on shorter but completed research or descriptions of original laboratory techniques (methods, apparatus etc.) and should be concise.
Reviews are original, critical and up-to-date  surveys of an area in which, preferably, the author himself/herself is active. They should include recent references from international publications.
Professional papers present new possibilities of improvement within areas of science. The emphasis is on the application of known methods and facts as well as on broadening the knowledge in the particular area. The acquired knowledge is applied to the object of research.
Difference between scientific and professional papers is in their original results and conclusions as well as method used. Although professional paper may be more useful for the application it is not considered as a new scientific contribution.
Papers previously reported at a congress, symposium etc. will be published only if they have not previously been published in proceedings. However, these papers are subject to regular editorial procedure, i.e. evaluation by referees and revision.

Only the manuscripts that conform to the following instructions will be considered:
The manuscript should be submitted in duplicate printouts of 10–15 typewritten pages with 1.5 spacing on one side of the paper (A4 format) accompanied by the identical file by e-mail (preferably Microsoft Word compatible formats). Normal plain font should be used (Times New Roman, font size 12) for both text and figures.
All papers must be written in English. If English is not the authors’ first language, the manuscript should be given to a native speaker of English for proofreading. The cover letter should contain full names (with underlined surnames) of all authors, their titles and their signatures confirming that manuscript or part of it was
not accepted for publication or being considered for publication or published somewhere else.
The manuscript must contain full names and business addresses of all authors with asterisk next to the name of the corresponding author. Footnote at the bottom of the first page should contain information about the corresponding author (phone, fax and e-mail).
