on . . Hits: 547

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.

What are cookies?

   A cookie is a text file stored in a user’s web browser on any device they use to access a website that holds information regarding the user’s visit, such as preferences. When the user returns, the browser provides the cookie with the stored information to the site.

What cookies are used for?

   Cookies are used for adjusting a website’s content to fit a user’s preferences and optimize the website. They store useful information that improve the user’s experience of a website. They are most commonly used for:

  •     Recognizing the type of device a user is browsing with and any preferences applied to optimize the website specifically for the device.
  •     Creating statistics that help website owners to understand how their users interact with their website, which allows them to improve their structure and content.

What types of cookies are used?

   There are two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive for a period of time specified in the cookie’s file parameters or until removed manually. When you return to a website and it requires you to login again despite previously storing your login information, it is usually because the persistent cookie expired; this helps to increase security while maintaining accessibility.

   Session cookies, on the other hand, are used temporarily and expire once the website or browser is closed. They are used to track user activity on a website during a single visit. When a website requires that you verify your age or location once every visit before allowing you to view content and without requiring additional personal details, that is a session cookie at work.

Do cookies include personal data?

   If there is a need for the collection of personal information, such as for creating accounts, then cookies may store personal information. However, it is required by data protection law that users are informed of the collection of personal data. This data will also be encrypted to render it inaccessible for unauthorized users.

Managing cookies

   By default, browsers are configured to accept cookies. However, these settings may be changed to block cookies entirely, or to inform the user each time they are used. Detailed information about cookies and the options associated with them are available in each browsers’ settings.
