Special Issue "Microbial Processing of Dissolved Organic Matter in Streams and Rivers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2021) | Viewed by 8452
Fluvial networks are globally relevant for the processing of dissolved organic matter (DOM). However, the molecular change of DOM quality and diversity along river courses has only been described in a few studies so far, and the role of bacteria in the transformation of specific components is not fully understood. Thus, I invite papers that investigate DOM along the flow stretch of streams and rivers using high resolution methods, and that are related to measures of bacterial activity such as biomass production, enzyme activity, metabolism, or transcriptomics. Alternatively, experiments on the transformation of fluvial DOM are welcome. The goal is to obtain information from many waters with different hydrology, and of land use of the catchement, season, or latitude. These results will improve our understanding of organic matter conversion in running waters.

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 2200 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.
