Compared with other conventional analytical methods, the use of non-destructive sensors (e.g., infrared, electronic noses, Raman, and hyperspectral) confers the food industry with a wide range of tools to target food authenticity issues. Many available sensor systems are those based on the application of hyperspectral imaging; visible, near-, and mid-infrared; fluorescence; Raman spectroscopy; electronic noses; and tongues that can be applied to a vast range of samples and applications. In recent years, technological advances have made non-destructive sensors available for both research and industry applications. Consequently, there is growing interest in the non-destructive evaluation of foods and agricultural products targeting authentication issues (e.g., geographical origin, provenance).
This upcoming Special Issue of Applied Sciences will focus on recent developments and applications of the use of non-destructive sensors (e.g., infrared, electronic noses, Raman, and hyperspectral) to target food authentication issues in agricultural commodities and foods. Advances in the hardware and instrumentation, chemometrics, methodology, and practical implementation of these technologies will be considered. We would like to invite you to submit or recommend original research papers for the “Non-Destructive Sensors for Food Authentication” Special Issue.

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. 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 2000 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.
