Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to introduce this Special Issue of Foods entitled “Targeting Novel Integrated and Multidisciplinary Approaches in Food Analysis.”

This project will bring together contributions that define the state of the art in the area of food analysis and methods, while also opening new windows and exploring novel analytical approaches and strategies that are now available to look at the future of relevant areas of interest.

Conventional and non-conventional methodologies will be compared and discussed. Food analysis study relies more and more on an integrated and multidisciplinary approach. The combined procedure of emerging technologies, such as multi-elemental analysis, isotopic ratio mass spectrometry, fluorescence, near-infrared (NIR), mid-infrared (MIR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopies, high-end mass spectrometry, and the application of statistical methods like chemometrics, represents the new frontier. Descriptions of multi-target approaches and innovative applications are welcome in this Special Issue. The combination of studies derived from different fields, based on food analysis and food chemistry, will be the basis for a rigorous scientific approach substantiated by analytical data.

This issue should attract state-of-the-art studies that will exploit the frontier of the food chemical analysis benefitting from new and updated techniques and methods, with the perspective to improve them and render them in a multidisciplinary sustainable approach, which is safe, fast, and efficient. Particular attention will be given to green, environmentally friendly, fast procedures, and new methodologies.

Based on this premise, only Review papers are considered acceptable.

Prof. Dr. Antonello Santini

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. Foods 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 2900 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.
