Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Technological disruptions such as big data (e.g., machine learning) and sensors (e.g., near and mid-infrared), are becoming fundamental to characterise, monitor and measure a wide range of characteristics and properties in foods. These technologies are defining new approaches in how food production systems are analysed, measured and/or monitored. The combination of these technologies in combination with advance mathematical analysis and processing approaches are also creating new opportunities for interdisciplinary research in both food sciences and industry. This Special Issue on “Spectroscopic Methods in Food Analysis” is aiming to cover the most recent advances and applications of vibrational spectroscopy methods and techniques into food (composition, authenticity, fraud, process analysis, safety, etc.).

I warmly welcome colleagues to submit their original contributions to this Special Issue, which will be of interest to a wide range of readers.

Prof. Dr. Daniel Cozzolino
Guest Editor

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.
