Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Harmful cyanobacterial algal blooms and cyanotoxins have emerged as major threats to freshwater resources worldwide. In response, the elimination of cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins, studied since the late 1990s, has attracted growing interest due to the transformational capacity of new materials to eradicate those organic toxins and microorganisms via advanced oxidation processes, and due to engineering challenges confronted during the transition to treating larger volumes of water. Added to that, the global context of the threat demands the design of new, simple, sustainable, low-cost strategies and technologies for water decontamination that can be readily implemented worldwide, especially in developing countries.

Against that background, the proposed Special Issue aims to present novel results from research on the development and optimization of advanced oxidation processes for the efficient removal of harmful cyanobacterial algal blooms and/or cyanotoxins in water.

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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins 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 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.
