Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fungi are ubiquitous and all human food and animal feed can become contaminated with mycotoxins. Formation of mycotoxins is not restricted to any component of the human food or animal feed supply chains and the level of contamination varies with location and reflects agronomic practices, climate and storage conditions and an array of physical, chemical and biological factors. Globally, mycotoxins have significant human and animal health, economic and international trade implications. This has significant consequences in both developed and developing countries. In developing countries the primary concern with mycotoxin contamination is human health and the impact on animal health and production is the second major concern. In contrast to developed economies, where the additional costs to the producer and/or the consumer to meet the economic burden of regulating the food and feed supply is the major mycotoxin concern, followed by the impact on animal health and production
Most mycotoxins are very stable chemically and once formed will continue to contaminate that commodity and foods or feeds manufactured from it. Mycotoxins present a major analytical challenge due to the range of chemical compounds that they represent and the array of food and feed matrices in which they are found. There are a number of areas of mycotoxin analysis that require further study and refinement, including commodity sampling techniques, conjugated toxin determination and field screening of commodities, especially cereal grains.. Analysis is essential for determining the occurrence and extent of mycotoxin contamination, for risk analysis, confirming the diagnosis of a mycotoxicosis and for monitoring mycotoxins in traded commodities and for evaluating mitigation strategies. Importantly, mycotoxins are naturally occurring compounds which will pose an ongoing threat to food and feed security and the risk of occurrence may be aggravated by climate change, In this special issue, papers describing the occurrence and mitigation of mycotoxins in human food and animal feed would be most welcome along with papers covering pertinent global mycotoxin topics.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins 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 800 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
