Plants are exposed to different biotic and abiotic stresses leading to the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are highly toxic and could cause impairment to proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids that finally results in an oxidative stress. Excessive concentrations of ROS are strictly regulated by ROS scavenging pathways such as efficient enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant defence systems that protect plant cells from oxidative stress damage. Coordinated activities of these antioxidants regulate ROS detoxification and reduce oxidative stress in plants. Hydrogen peroxide and superoxide radicals have emerged as the main ROS playing a key role as secondary messengers by regulating diverse function in plants; however its accumulation at high levels causes oxidative damage leading to cell death. Over the past decades significant progresses have been made to understand the role of ROS and its signalling behaviour in plants under stress.
This Special Issue aims to publish original research papers and reviews on aspects of oxidative stress in plants under different stress conditions. The topics covered in this issue will include ROS production and scavenging, ROS signalling in plants, involvement of ROS in cell death, and the role of plants enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants under stress conditions.Dr. Juan B.

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. Antioxidants 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 1600 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.
