Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,                

The Italian chemical community has a long tradition in the chemistry of natural products, both of terrestrial and marine origin, as well as in the investigation and preservation of both terrestrial and marine biodiversity. This conference ISCNP31 & ICOB11 (https://www.iscnp31-icob11.org/) will be a chance to present your recent results and ideas in the field of natural products taking advantage of a vibrant and international community of scientists.

We encourage you to submit your recent results in the field of natural products, in particular novel mechanism of action, molecules, biomaterials, and approach to the synthesis of natural products. 

The event is supported by MDPI’s open access journals Marine Drugs and Molecules, so this will be a Joint Special Issue. You can publish by selecting one of the two journals.

We look forward to receiving your research papers and welcoming you to this conference.

Please contact us if you have any questions: [email protected]

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Molecules.

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. Marine Drugs 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 2900 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.
