We are organizing a Special Issue of Sustainability entitled “Monitoring of Environmental Matrices: New Scenarios and Future Perspectives”. The venue is a peer-reviewed open-access journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of sustainability. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sustainability.
Environmental monitoring is a valuable tool to identify the sources and the extent of adverse effects and risks to ecosystems on issues related to the degradation of soil, air, water, flora and fauna. The environment is experiencing severe and rapid changes that will have far-reaching implications for resilient and sustainable development at local and global scales. To achieve sustainable management of the environment, including urban environments, and preserve ecosystems at the same time by contrasting the impacts with appropriate solutions. To do this, it is critical to collect a wide spectrum of data (i.e., field or remote-sensed data) to obtain information on their quality and availability states and to measure the effectiveness of the interventions as well.
Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes papers highlighting the effectiveness and the challenges of monitoring activities in different fields. We believe that the scientific contributions from cultural fields of different origins are highly effective for the development and promotion of research and innovation in the conservation, protection, and requalification of the environment. In this context, we promote multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary studies on monitoring issues aimed at the prevention of environmental damages, the protection of ecosystems, the integrated and sustainable management of resources, even focusing on strategies and actions for reducing climate change impacts, including the development of policies for land use governance. Moreover, the integrated monitoring activity by scientists of different backgrounds allows a better understanding of the response of the environment to multiple stressors.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to environmental monitoring of soil, air, water, flora and fauna. If you are uncertain about whether your paper fits into the scope of this Special Issue, please contact the Guest Editors.

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. Sustainability 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 2400 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.
