Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Under the effect of the plant-based diet trend, plant-based foods have gained widespread popularity. Plant-based foods refer to a variety of products made from fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes and pulses, etc. In recent years, spectroscopy technology has received extensive attention in the fields of plants and food. In addition, the development of imaging technology, microscopic equipment, and artificial intelligence has promoted the further application of spectroscopy technology in rapid and non-destructive detection. Noting the rapid expansion in spectroscopy, we are announcing a Special Issue of Applied Sciences entitled "Spectroscopy Applications in Plant and Plant-Based Foods". The aim is to explore the latest progress in applying spectroscopy technology to the quality and safety assessment of plant raw materials, food processing, and food products. Phenotypic information analysis, sensory quality evaluation, nutrient composition detection, microbial metabolism analysis, food functional assessment, contamination detection, etc., are encouraged. The optimization of analytical equipment and platforms, as well as innovative applications of analytical techniques and methods, are also welcomed.

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.
