Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Noise measurement, acoustic signal processing, and noise control are all related fields and they are very important for system analyses, experimental validation, and the manipulation of unwanted signals or noise. Noise measurement and signal processing involve quantifying the level and characteristics of a signal or noise and manipulating and interpreting signals in a system or environment. Acoustic signal processing also encompasses a wide range of techniques and algorithms that are used to extract meaningful information from signals, enhance signal quality, and remove or reduce noise. This processing can also involve multiple sensors in different locations and different algorithms. Noise control aims to reduce or eliminate unwanted noise to create a more desirable acoustic environment, based on noise measurements and signal processing. Noise control can be achieved through sound insulation, vibration isolation, active noise cancellation, sound reflections due to impedance mismatch or vibro-acoustic coupling, or the absorption of sound by porous materials, microperforated structures, or meta-materials. Therefore, the topic of noise measurement, acoustic signal processing, and noise control encompasses a range of multidisciplinary areas, including the development of technology, algorithm establishment, measurements, sensor arrangement, the signal processing of acoustics, vibration and machinery signals, signals from fluid dynamics, and the development and analysis of noise control technology. All papers on technology used for these purposes and its applications are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
