Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This section is intended to present a revision on the instrumental analytical techniques and methods used to extract and measure food bioactives together with their main applications in food science research. The art of modern analytical instruments, methodologies, and applications for food bioactives includes the present and future challenges in food bioactive analysis, the application of “omics”, and also provides an overview on the different methods to measure their bioaccessibility, bioavailability, and bioactivity. Comparison between in vivo and in vitro procedures used to determine bioaccessibility, bioavailability, and bioactivity will be considered taking into account the strengths and limitations of each experimental technique, along with an intensive description of actual approaches applied to assess them. Applications of food bioactives will consider studies regarding carotenoids, polyphenolic compounds, glucosinolates, vitamin E, and phytosterols, for example.

Prof. Dr. Jesus Simal-Gandara
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. Methods and Protocols 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 1600 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.
