Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Among the multitude of pressures introduced by human activities, special attention needs to be given also to the fate of a vast number of chemical products: from pharmaceuticals and personal care products to pesticides, manufactured nanomaterials, microplastics and other products that are used daily and that will be created in the near future. All these chemical products are known as Emerging Contaminants and they may have potential adverse effects on human and environmental health. Understanding how these emerging contaminants move in surface waters is a fundamental step to predict their fate and advance methods and approaches used for estimating the hazards due to their exposure. This Water Special Issue is designed to publish high-quality papers that will explore these topics. The aim of the Special Issue is to improve existing modeling approaches by combining them with monitoring measurements in order to quantitatively predict their fate and improve the approaches and methods used for assessing risks. We are particularly interested in receiving manuscripts that review experimental, theoretical and computational studies.

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 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 1800 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.
