Moreover, the Annual Review contains articles written by the recipients of the Carlsberg Foundation Research Prize 2015, as well as articles on the historic and current meaning of the Carlsberg Foundation as a key source of funds to Danish researchers, both then and now. Furthermore, the Annual Review presents several articles on the Carlsberg Family.

On the occasion of the 140th anniversary, naturally, the founder of the Carlsberg Foundation, brewer J.C. Jacobsen, 1811-1887 (painted by August Jerndorff in 1886), embellishes the cover of the Annual Review. The brewer stands in his greenhouse Pompeji by his home at Carlsberg. The microscope, the flasks and the books on the table refer to the scientifically founded art of brewing.
