Odors are today recognized as an important source of pollution and are therefore subject to control and regulation in many countries. In recent decades, there have been huge efforts from the scientific community to overcome the common belief that odor characterization is more art than science.
For this reason, this Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences “New Frontiers in the Assessment, Monitoring and Control of Environmental Odors” aims to attract novel contributions covering the wide range of techniques that have been developed and used for the assessment of odor impact and annoyance, as well as the management and control of emissions.
Our topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Standardization of methods;
- Odor sampling;
- Applications of odor measurement;
- Odor impact assessment;
- Measurement of odor concentration and odor thresholds;
- Chemical analysis for odor characterization;
- Artificial intelligence approaches;
- Community participation;
- Odor mapping;
- Health effects of odor pollution;
- Dispersion modeling;
- Odor annoyance;
- Odor control and abatement;
- Process control for the reduction of odor emissions;
- Indoor odor pollution.

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 2300 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.
