Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The contributions made to this Special Issue should be linked to the phytochemical characterizations and biological activities/functional properties of bioactive compounds obtained from native and cultivated aromatic, medicinal, and food plants. Furthermore, bioactive compounds can be extracted from their by-products or residual biomasses. The main solvents used for the extraction of bioactive compounds should be environmentally friendly, and the used extraction methods could be conventional or unconventional. The aim of this Special Issue is to promote circular extraction processes. The topics of this Special Issue also include the applications of bioactive compounds as functional ingredients for modern medicinal drug and cosmetic product development, to improve the quality of crops, and for environmental protection. The use of total extracts or fractions obtained from plants as functional ingredients for different applications is an emerging research area that needs to be highlighted.

Therefore, for this Special Issue, we invite you to submit research and review articles relevant to the field.

The Special Issue is now open for submissions

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 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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
