ISO-FOOD: Isotopic techniques in food safety, quality and traceability

Virtual Special Issue

  • Guest Editors

    The past few years has seen a resurgence in the need for and development of new methods and techniques for assuring the quality and safety of food. Much of this comes on the back of major food scandals, continued globalisation and complexity of the food supply chain, new threats (e.g., nanotechnology), advances in instrumentation (especially Mass Spectrometry) and a shifting definition of how we define food quality. The ERA Chair ISO-FOOD as guest editor of this special issue invites people to submit original research and critical reviews on the use of isotopic techniques relating to food safety and quality. Although ISO-FOOD has a bias towards the use of Isotopes in authenticity and traceability we will consider submissions on essential and nonessential elements and their speciation, organic contaminant and important bioactive compounds in food and articles on the exploitation of big data in relation to food chemistry as long as they conform to the scope of FOOD Chemistry.

    Interests: Isotopic techniques; Authenticity; Adulteration; Traceability; Safety, Mass spectrometry, NMR techniques; Chemometrics, Modeling

    Manuscript Preparation and Submission

    All manuscripts must be submitted through the online submission system (EES) of Food Chemistry. To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, it is important to select “VSI: ISO-FOOD” when you reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process. Please refer to the journal’s Guide for Authors for specific advice on how to prepare a paper (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/foodchem). All papers will be evaluated by the Guest Editors and then reviewed by at least two reviewers. Accepted papers are published online individually as ‘Articles in Press’ after final acceptance, and before final print publication.
