About the book

Oil crops are an important class of agronomic crops and very important for the human diet. Oil crops not only provide edible oils but some of them have diverse uses like feeds, fuel, medicine, etc. These also contain many other mineral components in significant amounts and that is why the popularity of oil crops has increased in the last few decades. In the last few years, researchers have developed many new varieties and plant types of oil crops which has contributed to total edible oil production in the world. However, agronomic management, other production practices, and processing greatly vary depending on the plant types and the environment. Therefore, understanding the appropriate production and processing of oil crops is important. So, far researchers have gained considerable achievements in this area.

This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the various aspects of oil crops – their biology, production technologies, and processing.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
