The Journal Applied Sciences runs a Special Issue on Odors

Applied Sciences    The scientific Open Access journal Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417, IF 2.217) is currently running a Special Issue entitled “New Frontiers in the Assessment, Monitoring and Control of Environmental Odors".

   Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access journal on all aspects of applied natural sciences published semi-monthly online by MDPI. A group of odor experts from the Politecnico di Milano (Italy) are the guest editor for this special edition: Assoc. Prof. Selena Sironi, Prof. Laura Maria Teresa Capelli and Dott. Ing. Marzio Invernizzi.

   As the guest editor describes “This Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences “New Frontiers in the Assessment, Monitoring and Control of Environmental Odors” aims to attract novel contributions covering the wide range of techniques that have been developed and used for the assessment of odor impact and annoyance, as well as the management and control of emissions.

   This is not the first time that an open access journal from MDPI published an special issue on odours. Last year, the journal Atmosphere launched a special edition dedicated to environmental odours, counting on the well-known odour experts Dr. Martin Piringer and Dr. Günther Schauberger as Guest editors. You can read the 8 articles published for now at the Atmosphere Special Issue "Environmental Odour: Emission, Dispersion, and the Assessment of Annoyance"

   The official submission for this new issue of Applied Sciences is open now and the deadline for this special issue is 30 October 2020. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Standardization of methods;
  • Odor sampling;
  • Applications of odor measurement;
  • Odor impact assessment;
  • Measurement of odor concentration and odor thresholds;
  • Chemical analysis for odor characterization;
  • Artificial intelligence approaches;
  • Community participation;
  • Odor mapping;
  • Health effects of odor pollution;
  • Dispersion modeling;
  • Odor annoyance;
  • Odor control and abatement;
  • Process control for the reduction of odor emissions;
  • Indoor odor pollution.

   This issue is open for submission, so anyone interested in participating on this publication, can read more detailed information here.
