Special Issue "Marine Chitin 2019"
A special issue of Marine Drugs (ISSN 1660-3397).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
As results of our calls in 2014–2018 for submissions to Special Issues related to Chitin and Chitosan in Marine Drugs, we are pleased to tell you that these issues were published as books. A number of high class papers were included in these issues. Because of these successes, we now seek to publish a Special Issue, “Marine Chitin, 2019” in Marine Drugs. As before, we plan to produce a strong, and very exciting issue that will encompass breakthroughs in high value, scientific and industrial chitin and chitosan research. Despite significant advances in chitin and chitosan research since the 1970s, current overviews in recent publications involving chitin and chitosan research advances need reporting.
We look forward to your input.
