Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue of Water focuses on the natural and anthropogenic impacts on water quality in watershed ecosystems. The water quality is determined by various chemical and biological processes, as well as their complex interactions. For example, nutrient cycling includes processes of weathering, dissolution, absorption, and decomposition, amongst others. Water pollution problems appear after the emission of pollutants, migration, modification, and absorption by organisms. Most of the driving forces of these processes are the function of various organisms, including aquatic macrophytes, algae, microorganisms, and humans. Investigations of these processes are useful for considering procedures for the removal of contaminants, avoiding harmful impacts on organisms and the conservation of watershed ecosystems encompassing rivers, reservoirs, wetlands, aquifer, forests, grasslands, and agroecosystems, and a whole range of other types of ecosystems related to water environments. Papers comprising this Special Issue focus on all chemical and biochemical processes in all ecosystems in watersheds. Papers describing both pure and applied investigations will be considered for publication.

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.
