Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food safety is an important public health issue that affects the health of all human beings and the global economy. As an important part of food safety management, food testing can provide the corresponding data support for its development. With the rapid development of instrumental analysis, the advanced technologies of some disciplines continue to penetrate into food analysis, generating an increasing number of analytical instruments and analytical methods. Chromatography is one of the most dynamic fields in food quality analysis in recent decades, which is essentially a method of physicochemical separation and analysis. Furthermore, spectroscopic analysis refers to analytical methods that use the experimental methods and the principles of spectroscopy to determine the chemical composition and structure of substances. Although the two applications of these methods have been widely used in food safety testing, the innovative applications of these methods at the theoretical and technical levels should also keep up with the trend in response to the increasing demand for modern food testing. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on modern innovative chromatographic and spectroscopic analysis methods for food quality and safety analysis, which has practical significance and plays a guiding role for the development of food safety testing technology.

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. Foods 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 2900 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.
