Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Journal of Marine Science and Engineering: Coastal Systems: Monitoring, Protection and Adaptation Approaches
Special Issue in Geosciences: Tectonic Geomorphology in Modern Orogenic Zones
Special Issue in Geosciences: Management of Natural Disaster in Coastal Zones
Rising human population densities in coastal regions of the world, the advance of exploration activities in deep waters, uncertainties and concerns related to climate change, and the devastation of coastal areas by tsunamis generated by earthquakes and landslides (e.g., Southeast Asia 2004 and Japan 2011) are responsible for the growing importance and awareness related to marine geological hazards research. Research on high energy events is essential to understand coastal evolution, the response of the coastal zone, and impact on coastal morphodynamics. The purpose of the invited Special Issue is to publish the most interesting research with respect to the above topics, to provide a faster reviewing and publishing time, and to propagate the articles freely for research, teaching, and reference purposes.
High-quality works related to the various aspects mentioned below are encouraged.
- Coastal erosion;
- Coastal hazards;
- Submarine landslides;
- Seabed sand waves;
- Case studies;
- Effects on benthic fauna.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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 2200 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.
