Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Consumer demand for food quality and safety has increased as the world's population and the popularity of healthy eating have grown. This demand has led to researchers developing advanced analytical methods and management techniques that enable the assessment of food safety and quality. It is important to use highly sensitive analytical methods at the levels required by current legislation and good quality management to control the risk of contaminants affecting food quality. It is also noteworthy that food contaminants can adversely affect non-target organisms and human health. In recent years, varied new technologies and approaches (physical, chemical, and biological) have been applied in the fields of food growing, management, harvesting, storing, transportation, processing, and sales. This Special Issue will focus on such advanced food safety and quality management techniques, including, but not being limited to, these topics: infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, electronic nose and electronic tongue, good agricultural practices, good manufacturing practices, hazard analysis, critical control points, pre- and post-harvest studies of pests and diseases, and quality and safety control. Papers that discuss novel approaches to sensor data analysis based on strategies such as big data and deep learning are also welcome.

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.
