Interests: Ecological and health impact of emerging contaminants in water
Emerging contaminants with known or unknown health effects, once produced, will find their own way to enter aquatic environments. Their fates and behaviors in water environments are still not fully understood and their associated risks have not been clearly known. Removal of emerging contaminants still remains a large challenge in today's water industry. As emerging contaminants issues have become increasingly important due to rapid population growth, industrialization, and so on, it would be of great importance to have a Special Issue to look into issues such as emerging contaminants occurrence, fate and transport, treatment and management. Therefore, we seek scientific findings and results in the abovementioned areas, which can contribute to new knowledge to water science and water engineering.
We would like to invite authors to submit original research and review articles focused on emerging contaminants.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Development in detection methods and devices
- Fate and behavior in water environment
- Micropollutant source control and management
- Monitoring in water, air, soil and sludge
- Emerging contaminants associated toxicity and risk assessment
- Technologies and processes for control and removal of emerging contaminants
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 1400 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.
