Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Factors such as climate change and rapid urbanization are putting a huge amount of strain on the availability of fresh water in most of the cities around the world. Novel and smart membranes developed using the knowledge of materials science, nanomaterials, nanotechnology, fiber science, and process engineering have been shown to hold tremendous potential in addressing the problems related to water scarcity and the availability of fresh water. As a result, research related to membranes has intensified as the membranes are increasingly explored for water filtration and separation, water treatment, desalination of brackish water, and water reclamation.

This Special Issue is devoted to covering a broad range of research activities, findings and recent progress in the development of membranes and their application for water treatment, filtration, and desalination. Authors are invited to submit their original research work or critical review addressing development and applications of membranes. Of particular interests are the articles that use membranes for separating specific contaminants from water, using membranes for desalination, biomimetic membranes, self-cleaning membranes that resist fouling, and energy efficient membrane systems.

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. Membranes 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 1000 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.
