Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Organic pollutants are widespread in the environment, posing significant threats to both human health and ecosystems. Paddy-ditch-pond water, which is utilized for irrigating rice fields, stands out as a major contributor to and receptor of organic pollutants. Microbial transformation plays a pivotal role in influencing the destiny and movement of these pollutants within paddy-ditch-pond water. Nevertheless, the mechanisms, kinetics, and factors influencing the microbial transformation of organic pollutants in paddy-ditch-pond water remain inadequately understood. This Special Issue aims to offer a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge and identify research gaps in the microbial transformation and transport of organic pollutants in paddy-ditch-pond water. It will extend to other topics, such as the identification and characterization of microbial communities and enzymes involved in the transformation of organic pollutants, modeling and simulating the transport and transformation of these pollutants in paddy-ditch-pond water, and evaluating and optimizing bioremediation strategies for the removal of organic pollutants from paddy water. Additionally, this Special Issue will shed light on the challenges and opportunities for future research and applications related to the microbial transformation of organic pollutants in paddy-ditch-pond 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 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. Water 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 2600 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.
