Meat and Muscle Biology Debuts First Article

Apr 27, 2017

MMB CoverAt 11:50 a.m. Central Standard Time on April 27, 2017 an event took place that forever changes the face of meat science research and publishing. AMSA is pleased to announce the publishing of Meat and Muscle Biology, a new journal that brings the entire spectrum of meat science research to one location in an open access format that anyone can use.

Here is the current table of contents

The first article up is Species-Specificity in Myoglobin Oxygenation and Reduction Potential Properties by a team of researchers at Oklahoma State University led by chemist Rajasekhara Nerimetla. The authors studied differences in myoglobin functional properties between beef and pork and produced results that could lead to better understanding of color stability in meat products.

There are a number of articles that have been accepted and are in the final stages of processing. You can see a list of those at the First Looks link on the table of contents - here is a direct link to that list: https://dl.sciencesocieties.org/publications/mmb/first-look.

Congratulations to the MMB Editorial Board and Editor-In-Chief Ken McMillin for the launch of a great resource for AMSA members and meat scientists around the world.
