Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The food industry benefits from the possibility of accurate predictions regarding improved food products and efficient processing techniques, which are main themes in food engineering. Modelling is an essential part in that context. Numerous modelling techniques are being progressively researched, leading to advanced analysis of the underlying mechanisms of food material changes during all stage of its life cycle, including cultivation, harvesting, processing and storage. To meet the ever-increasing consumer demand and to meet the global competition in a sustainable manner, much emphasis has to be given to novel and improved means of modelling in food engineering, which can deliver useful insights both qualitatively and quantitatively. With this background, this Special Issue is devoted to such new approaches and achievements of modelling in food engineering.

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 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. Molecules 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 2000 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.
