Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Oceans will be our most valuable source of new products (from novel drugs to innovative biomaterials) to help us overcome societal challenges. Technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace, providing us with the tools necessary to answer important chemical and biological questions and promote scientific discoveries. Moreover, it is irrefutable that science and innovation, from basic research to applied sciences, must be performed in transdisciplinary groups. Ocean4Biotech—a European transdisciplinary networking platform for marine biotechnology—is a European-Commission-funded COST Action that aims to bring together multiple disciplines and include all relevant experts from marine-biotechnology-related fields. This Special Issue is open to all individual experts and researchers connected with Ocean4Biotech, relating to sampling methods, the discovery of natural marine products, process optimization, and use case scenarios. We believe that the research outputs that will be presented in this Special Issue will significantly benefit the global marine biotechnology sector and will place participants on the global map of marine biotechnology knowledge providers.

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 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).
