Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The application of non-conventional technologies in the processing of table olives, olive oil and their by-products seeks to respond to consumers' needs and desires. There is an increasing demand for foods with distinct characteristics and superior quality that are also safe, highly nutritious and minimally processed. Furthermore, it is necessary to apply the principles of circular economy by reducing waste and valuing the by-products generated in processing through the development of new products and new applications.

Thus, non-conventional technologies aim to obtain products that preserve or do not negatively alter the physical–chemical, biological and sensory characteristics of foods. Food safety and the economic viability of the applied technologies and products obtained are equally valued topics.

Special attention will be given to the following topics:

  • High hydrostatic pressures;
  • Supercritical fluids;
  • Ultrasounds;
  • Atmospheric cold plasma;
  • Ultraviolet radiation;
  • Irradiation;
  • Microwaves;
  • Joule heating and pulsed electric fields;

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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 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.
