The world's water supply is a precious commodity that circulates in a continuous cycle of use, abuse, and reuse—we all live downstream. Chemical water quality monitoring data lead to assessments and management of this valuable resource. For this Special Issue in Water, manuscripts (research, reviews, short communications) are solicited that describe data-gathering by sampling and analyses of chemical constituents in all types of environmental water bodies over time and space, whether impacted by natural or anthropogenic sources. Beyond merely reporting monitoring data, manuscripts are expected to interpret results of water quality monitoring studies within the context of environmental chemistry principles by evaluating such issues as chemical character, sources and sinks, fate and transport, or other potential impacts of chemicals on our water supply.

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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
