Special Issue "Advanced Research in Foodborne Microorganisms: Detection, Control, Risk Assessment and Prevention"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: food microbiology; food hygiene; public health; physical treatments of food; HACCP; risk assessment
Micro-organisms and food have been linked since the beginning of human nutrition. Depending on their nature, they constitute:
- A threat to the health of consumers
- A cause of food spoilage
- A necessary and indispensable element in the production of food.
Whatever their nature, their relationships with the food that carries them are studied in terms of microbial ecology in order to better understand them. Their identity is increasingly well established, their function increasingly deciphered, as well as their ability to withstand the conditions of food production and even to communicate with each other. This better knowledge of their properties must continue and be used to, as appropriate, prevent their transfer to the food, detect and control them, but also assess them in terms of public health risks.

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. Foods 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 1600 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.
