Culinaria is a monograph series that is published by the SoFAB Institute in partnership with the Tulane University Law School.  The series is designed to quickly publish peer reviewed articles and other important articles about the law, policy and cultural issues that involve food and drink.  Some general categories of interest include food safety/security; innovation and intellectual property; public health; food and beverage law (domestic and international); agriculture, fishing, and aquaculture; policy; environment and sustainability; history; and media and the arts.

As important as peer reviewed journals are, the process often results in a publication which is not available in a timely manner to facilitate debate and discussion.  It is the intention of Culinaria to review and publish well written articles in the field within a period of about 90 days or less so that they can be distributed and read while they are still relevant and can make a difference.

If you are a lawyer, an academic, or a person with something important to say, please consider submitting your article to us by emailing Liz Williams ( directly.
