Marine Drugs recently released a successful Special Issue “New Challenges in Structure Elucidation of Marine Natural Products: NMR Analyses and Other Advanced Methods” (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/marinedrugs/special_issues/NMR-advanced), collecting state-of-the-art research outcomes in this field. We are glad to say that in response to readers’ great passion for this research topic, we have decided to launch a second edition of the original Special Issue, which will continue focusing on the different challenging strategies used for solving the identification of marine natural products.
Modern analytical techniques and methods, encompassing mass-spectrometry-based omics strategies, advanced NMR methods, computational chemistry procedures, chiroptical methods, and configurational analysis approaches have emerged as powerful tools for the structure elucidation of marine natural products, expanding upon the traditional methods. These innovative approaches will be at the heart of this second edition Special Issue entitled “Taking on the Challenges of Marine Natural Products Structure Elucidation”.

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. 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 2000 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.
