Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Oxidative stress is arguably the most common mechanism in the toxicology of environmental agents, unifying the action of broad classes of physicochemically disparate environmental pollutants, including oxidant gases, organic compounds, particulate surfaces, and metal ions. As advances in redox biology identify previously unrecognized targets for disruption by exposure to xenobiotics, redox toxicology has emerged as a new field of investigation. Environmental contaminants can induce oxidative stress on cells through mechanisms that are direct, indirect, or involve the disruption of metabolic or bioenergetic processes that are regulated by thiol redox switches.

This Special Issue aims to collect original research and review articles that address all aspects of environmental pollutants and their mechanisms of action linked with oxidative stress, inflammation, and cell death in human diseases or using animal models.

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 Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
