Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

The main focus of the International Summer School on Natural Products (ISSNP) is on both established and emerging areas of research at the cutting-edge of organic chemistry inspired by natural products.

The natural world is a source of biologically active molecules and an inspiration for researchers in different fields. Natural products are bioactive compounds synthesized by terrestrial and marine plants, micro-organisms, and animals. Interdisciplinarity involves the simple combination of several points of view to solve complex problems relating to the characterization of bioactive natural compounds, their biological evaluation, and the clarification of their mechanisms of action.

Accordingly, the aim of this Special Issue of Marine Drugs  is to collect new discoveries in relation to bioactive molecules from marine-inspired compounds produced by isolation, semi-synthesis, and synthesis.

The biological activity of natural extracts or synthetic analogues without a proper chemical characterization will not be considered. Review articles in the field will also be evaluated.

The editors strongly encourage young scientists to publish their innovative research in this Special Issue.

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 collection 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.
