The field of vibrational spectroscopic imaging and mapping applied to different disciplines in life sciences, including, for example, cancer diagnosis and therapy, plant tissue studies, etc., has given rise to many highly interesting papers. In most cases, these papers are spread over several different journals with individual scientific focuses. Consequently, it is important to create a Special Issue to provide a broad survey and address various aspects. For the readership, this Special Issue will provide an attractive opportunity to obtain, more easily, information concerning the different facets of both infrared and Raman spectroscopic imaging and mapping. For the authors, it will be an appropriate occasion to make their results and techniques more visible, and to show that they are active members in the field of vibrational spectroscopic imaging and mapping.
This Special Issue will contain contributions discussing all the different aspects broadly indicated by the keywords. Review articles by experts in the field will also be welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Abstract: Adapting and using advanced technologies is a promising way to efficiently and reliably characterise and improve crops, as well as to improve the information available to be used by agronomists in order to develop best management practices in the process and commercialization of agricultural products and commodities. The main characteristic of these methodologies (high-throughput, non-destructive) attracted researchers from different fields in plant sciences (e.g., physiology, breeding) where many applications were or are in development. Different studies have shown the important role of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy in the analysis of crops and more recently, the development of hyper spectral imaging is placing these techniques and methods as the most useful tools in crop and plant sciences. These article provide with an overview on the applications and developments of vibrational spectroscopy imaging for the analysis, monitoring and characterization of crops and plants.
