Open Food Facts and Science
Open Food Facts do like to contribute to science.
Dozens of researchers already know or use Open Food Facts data. See:
- our spreadsheet of papers that reuse or mention Open Food Facts data
- our short synthesis related to scientific articles where Open Food Facts played a role.
- How to help mention Open Food Facts? For example, see the end of this page.
- Create a DOI? DOIs seem to be attached to fixed datasets and not databases. See:
- Look at the other article to see how they cite the database

- Some articles cite OFF by giving the url in the article :, 
- Some cite OFF by giving the name :
