Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental pollution is now of international concern and a public health issue. Pollution problems and effects have been widely causing environmental issues affecting water, soil, and air; this can affect all the inhabitants (fauna and flora) of the environmental spheres. The intake route of an environmental pollutant might be through physical, chemical, and biological processes; this begins with cell tissue interaction with toxic contaminants. This interaction can cause several negative effects and even death of the exposed organisms. Toxicity studies are extremely useful to evaluate the vulnerability and mortality probability of organisms induced by direct contamination; this has strong dependence on the pollutant type, time of exposure, pollutant concentrations, and the life cycle stage or the organisms at the time. In addition, environmental pollutants can lead to biomagnification processes, by an increased concentration of the toxic pollutant the higher an animal is on the food chain. 

The main purpose of this Special Issue in IJERPH is to publish original and/or review papers dealing with the incidence, sources, transportation, accumulation, and physical, chemical, and biological processes leading to toxicity and bioaccumulation on flora and fauna through water, soil, and air pollution. Studies on toxicity and bioaccumulation of priority environmental pollutants, such as pesticides, metals, metalloids, micro-plastics, nanoparticles, organic and persistent pollutants (PAHs, dioxins, hydrocarbons, furans, PCBs, phthalates, etc.), biotoxins, emerging contaminants, etc., are welcome.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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 2500 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.
