The author’s chapter on the science and technology of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) in the book 'Food Packaging Technology' has been updated. The second edition of the book was be published in 2011. As a result of this revision, the list of references previously available for downloading has been extensively updated and is available for downloading subject to a small donation towards the running costs of the Dairy Science and Food Technology website.

The list of references is in rich text format (RTF) and can be viewed and edited using most word processing software on PCs and Macs.

The references have been prepared in a Harvard-style format e.g.

Lalitha, K.V. and Gopakumar, K. (2001). Growth and toxin production by Clostridium botulinum in fish (Mugil cephalus) and shrimp (Penaeus indicus) tissue homogenates stored under vacuum. Food Microbiology. 18: 651-65.

The reference list when printed on to A4 paper will give ten  to 12 (10-12) pages of single spaced citations, depending on how your word processing programme is configured, containing some 132 individual references.

Who will benefit from the reference list?

Anyone starting project work on MAP who wants "to hit the ground running"!  The list contains refereed publications, reports from national governments and a small number of quality 'downloadable' resources.
