Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting the submission of papers focusing on the subject of our Special Issue, entitled “New Advances in Analytical Method of Emerging Contaminants and Risk Assessment”. Alongside changes in legislation and rapidly evolving industries, there is a continuous stream of emerging contaminants entering our environment.

In particular, I am interested in articles that address advancements in the analysis of emerging chemical flame retardants, perfluorinated alkyl substances (PFASs), pharmaceuticals and personal care products, any other emerging contaminants in:

  • Matrices for assessing the internal exposure/body burden (e.g., blood/serum/urine/tissue) of emerging contaminants;
  • Matrices likely to lead to human exposure, e.g., air, drinking water or dust;
  • Any matrix likely to lead to environmental exposure, e.g., surface water, soils or sediments;
  • Advances in risk assessment procedures for exposure to emerging contaminants.

I look forward to reading your contributions.

Dr. Daniel Drage
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

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. Toxics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
