The motivation for writing and carrying out these scientific studies is for the benefit of the community. Quinoa, like many other cereals and pseudocereals, is experiencing a phenomenon called pre-harvest sprout (PHS). While dormancy screening and phenetic modeling approaches do not provide a direct solution to preventing PHS in quinoa, they do provide new tools for identifying dormant varieties as well as morphological variables contributing to seed dormancy. We hope this paper provides a solution and a forward direction for future work, as we need to understand this phenomenon and the mechanisms behind it.

The article is a protocol for a proposed scoping review. The proposed review would develop a definition of biofortification through the synthesis of food biofortification publications and would document the breadth of the research on biofortification.
