Bioactive Compounds in Health and Disease

Bioactive Compounds in Health and Disease (BCHD) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal. This journal focuses on bioactive compounds related to health and disease including topics from various fields of science. 

Bioactive Compounds in Health and Disease has been indexed in the following databases: Scopus, Index Copernicus, CrossRef, and Google Scholar. The BCHD journal has been indexed in Scopus since 2021 with a current Citation Score of 3.3


The journal is an excellent resource for students, professors, public health professionals, medical doctors, dieticians, nutritionists, and the general public for information regarding the latest advancements for promoting optimal health, reducing the risk of chronic/viral diseases, and managing their symptoms using bioactive compounds.  

When we investigate bioactive compounds from the perspective of functional foods, these compounds are defined as the following: "food bioactive compounds are primary and secondary metabolites of nutritive and non-nutritive natural components generating health benefits by reducing the risk of chronic and viral diseases and managing their symptoms." The main goal of this journal is to develop research in order to better understand bioactive compounds and how they can help manage the symptoms of chronic and viral diseases.

In October 2021, BCHD was accepted into the Scopus indexing database. All past and future articles will now be indexed in Scopus. 

We are accepting article submissions for our upcoming article release. Please refer to our guidelines for article submissions:
