Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Applications of biosensing technologies in food safety are attracting more attention. Food contaminants are any harmful substances unintentionally added to food, which may be chemicals from natural sources, environmental pollution, or formed during food processing. Biosensor methods detect a specific trace analyte within a food matrix. Rapid, cost-effective, and portable biosensors can be extensively applied; however, there are still numerous challenges to be overcome. Rapid biosensor methods such as enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), immunochromatographic strip (ICS), aptamer, and lab-on-a-chip methods for detecting natural toxins, mycotoxins, marine biotoxins, antibiotic residues, plant toxins, pesticide, veterinary drug residues, artificial additives, and processing contaminant-acrylamide in the food chain are welcome.

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 papers will be 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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
