    Special Issue on Research on Tobacco


    Tobacco products are products made entirely or partly of leaf tobacco as raw material, which are intended to be smoked, sucked, chewed or snuffed. All contain the highly addictive psychoactive ingredient, nicotine. Tobacco use is one of the main risk factors for a number of chronic diseases, including cancer, lung diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. Despite this, it is common throughout the world. A number of countries have legislation restricting tobacco advertising, and regulating who can buy and use tobacco products, and where people can smoke. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of research on tobacco.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore research on tobacco. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Tobacco processing
    • Tobacco quality and safety
    • Tobacco genetic resources
    • Tobacco pest management and monitoring
    • Tobacco genetic improvement
