Over the past decade, profound advancements in analytical technology and methods for the characterization of natural products have enhanced our ability to identify novel metabolites, rapidly define molecular structures, and determine relative and absolute configurations. Many of these new methods rely heavily on the integration of computational methods with interpretation of experimental data.
This Special Issue will illustrate contemporary applications of NMR, metabolomics, metagenomics, electronic circular dichroism (ECD) and vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) in the field of natural products, and how they are increasingly unified with advances in modeling and statistical approaches.

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 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.
