Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food safety represents the principal goal of food analysis, including aspects correlated to food quality, processing and traceability. Along this mark, the constant progress of analytical tools in the last years has allowed researchers to move from conventional methodologies focused on targeting a limited number of analytes with modest analytical performance, to innovative procedures successfully applied to food science. As a result, food science research has significantly advanced, enabling the discovery of the recurrent connection between food and health.

In this Special Issue, by considering the field of “foodomics”, we wish to collect papers dealing with the use of advanced omics technologies, such as genomics, proteomics, lipidomics and metabolomics, together with bioinformatics applied to all the subfields including food safety, quality, traceability, processing, correlation between of food and health, characterization and mechanisms of bioactive food compounds. Our Topical Advisory Panel Member, Dr. Bianco Mariachiara (University of Bari), will assist Dr. Cosima Damiana Calvano in managing this Special Issue.

Alongside that, classical procedures applied to novel food or modern spectroscopic techniques highlighting the importance of food analysis are also welcome.

Dr. Cosima Damiana Calvano
Guest Editor

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
