Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Advanced sciences for endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) now allow the deep concerns about how EDCs affect health and disease in humans and animals. Exciting work from the US, Europe and Asia have shown that they have potential risks for cancer, reproduction, development, obesity and allergy by intake food, drinking and air in daily life. However, objective methods are still needed for integrating the multiple streams of evidence, such as epidemiology, in vivo, in vitro, and in silico analyses that are relevant in assessing EDCs, and for elucidating mechanisms of EDC’s biological properties. We have the pleasure of inviting research scientists to submit original research, mini and full reviews for this Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, entitled “Advances in the Research of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals”, dedicated to providing a comprehensive overview of the identified risks of the EDCs, covering new advances in elucidation of their adverse and biological properties, the discovery of new properties, or research on human health and animal health. Original research and reviews on these and related topics in this area 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 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. 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.
