Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, highly efficient separation-based analytical methods have played an increasingly important role in food integrity (authenticity, safety and quality) and assurance for public health. Remarkable advances have been achieved in the development and optimization of separation-based analytical methods, which is useful for both the precise analysis and reliable identification of various food pathogens, contaminants, adulterants, and other risk factors.

This Special Issue will include both well-drafted manuscripts providing an overview of the current knowledge of highly efficient separation-based analytical methods and analytical procedures, and experimental investigations utilizing novel techniques with advanced materials or instrumental devices to address specific analytical problems in food samples for food integrity analysis.

The aim of this Special Issue is to not only provide a general overview of the modern separation-based analytical methods used to analyze and identify various deleterious or risk factors of food integrity, but also to outline the current research trends in these methods, and to acquaint the scientific community with modern separation procedures and approaches, whether targeted or non-targeted, i.e., profiling or screening studies.

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 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. Separations 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 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.
