The emergence of novel surveillance techniques and environmental monitoring approaches that utilize metabolomics (and other omics technologies) alongside traditional methodologies is increasing. While traditional environmental and organism health monitoring techniques (e.g., chemical monitoring and bioassays) are highly suited to acute exposure, they are less able to detect subtle shifts in ecosystem function and health. Metabolomics-based approaches have the potential to provide deeper insight into these complex interactions between biological systems and the impacts resulting from anthropogenic environmental changes.
This Special Collection on assessing environmental health and function aims to attract high-quality manuscripts in the field of environmental metabolomics. We encourage researchers from all domains of environmental metabolomics research, integrated with traditional monitoring data and/or other omics datasets (i.e., multi-omics approaches) to contribute manuscripts highlighting novel approaches to ecosystem surveillance.

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. Metabolites 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 2700 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.
