Pioneered by physicists and chemists, methods based on infrared spectroscopy have traditionally been used for the analysis of several food matrices. Vibrational spectroscopy embraces a number of techniques and methods that include visible (VIS), mid-infrared (MIR), near infrared (NIR) and Raman spectroscopy. As these technologies or methods further develop by incorporating different sampling and presentation methods (e.g., attenuated total reflection, Fourier transform, transmittance, transflectance, reflectance, diffuse reflectance, hyperspectral and multispectral), new applications can be developed. These techniques are recognized as powerful tools for the routine analysis of several foods. Today, it is well recognised that spectroscopy not only can measure several biomolecules but also other characteristics or properties of the food (e.g., functionality, origin). This Special Issue welcomes submissions on the applications of spectroscopy for the analysis of quality and functionality in different food matrices.Assoc. Prof. Dr. Daniel Cozzolino
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 650 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.
