Plants and fruits are a source of food and play an essential role in maintaining a balance against environmental factors including human-induced stressors, which are becoming a crucial problem nowadays. These stressors and changes affect all stages of the plant’s lifecycle, from development to fruit ripening. A growing number of investigations have shown the significance of good extraction and analysis methods, based on innovation and type of plant, to evaluate several issues.
It is a conditional of quality research that it possesses excellent tools of work such as extraction methods appropriate for analysis of factors such as the following:
- Abiotic/biotic stress;
- Antioxidant metabolism;
- Nitro-oxidative stress;
The present Special Issue of Antioxidants aims to provide the most current extraction and analysis methods in plants and fruits, as well as to improve and extend the knowledge of higher plants related to mechanism of action, antioxidant metabolism, and abiotic/biotic stress. This Special Issue is open to different types of manuscripts, including reviews, original research papers, or new methods.

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. Antioxidants 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 2900 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.
