Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the world's population and the popularity of healthy eating grow, so too have the consumer demands for food quality and safety. These demands have led food-focused researchers to develop advanced analytical methods and sensors enabling the rapid assessment of food safety and quality. This Special Issue will focus on such advanced sensors, including, but not limited to: optical sensors (infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy); computer vision; hyperspectral imaging; and bionic sensing technologies (electronic nose, electronic tongue). Papers on novel approaches for sensor data analysis based on strategies such as big data and deep learning are also welcome.

With this Special Issue, we hope to present recent developments in sensors for food quality and safety assessment to promote the advancement of food analysis methods and data handling. Original research articles, reviews and short communications will all be accepted.

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.
