Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Marine organisms have been the source of a vast number of secondary metabolites. These range from simple to highly complex structures, some of which are being used in clinical practice due to their outstanding biological properties.

This Special Issue is intended as an integrated review of the most recent trends in marine microbial natural product drug discovery and key lead candidates that stand out due to their new chemistry and biology, as a starting point for discovering novel chemical entities that can be used as pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs). In addition to the broad scope addressed to an extensive audience of chemists and biologists, the issue will welcome articles from reference authors in the fields of novel screening alternatives, new targets, and isolation procedures. It will also include articles covering some examples of isolation and characterization of new marine metabolites, especially those with interesting biological properties in the pharmaceutical and PPCPs fields.

The issue is intended to describe the current challenges in the Marine Microorganism NPs area of research, where disciplines of chemical biology, synthetic chemistry, and microbial genetics are combined in the field of Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products (PPCPs).

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.
