Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The marine environment has been demonstrated to be a very rich source of biological and chemical diversity. Marine organisms produce a wide variety of diverse and unique natural products with a critical role in their survival and ecological performance.

Among these molecules, terpenoids are a large and diverse class of naturally occurring organic chemicals derived from terpenes. Built from the combination and modification of isoprene units, terpenoids lead to a multitude of structures with different ecological roles and biological properties.

The aim of this Special Issue of Marine Drugs is to cover new findings and advances on the chemistry and biology of this promising family of marine molecules, comprising novel structural features, biosynthetic studies, metabolomic studies, total synthesis and semisynthetic transformations, ecological functions, biotechnological applications, as well as their biological activities and mechanisms of action. Review articles that make substantial advances within this field will also be considered.

As Guest Editors of this Special Issue of Marine Drugs, we encourage scientists to contribute to the advancement and future directions in the field of marine terpenoids.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
