Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Monitoring and assessment of environmental pollution is a challenging task today, and it is particularly important for the understanding of the sources and levels of contamination of the environment with agents that interfere with human health, quality of life, or the natural function of ecosystems (living organisms and the environment in which they live), as well as unravelling the effects of individual or mixtures of pollutants, their pathways, routes of exposure, and risk factors.

The palette of pollutants in the environment, originating from human-made or natural sources, is exceptionally large and includes chemicals, organisms, and biological materials, and various forms of energy (ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, heat, noise, etc.). The number of pollutant factors is continuously growing, and their presence in the environment in an amount exceeding a limit that can be tolerated by one or more species of living things, or by humans, could inhibit their normal development and damage either the environment or human health.

This Special Issue welcomes submissions that report results from original and novel research addressing problems related to environmental pollution and its impact on ecosystems and human health.

Subject areas include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sources, levels, and distribution of pollutants in the environment, food, and human bodies;
  • Development of techniques for the analysis of occurrence, behavior, and transport of pollutants within environmental compartments;
  • Analysis of contaminants of emerging concern (e.g., pharmaceutical compounds, endocrine disruptors, antibiotic resistant microorganisms, microplastics);
  • Modeling of pollution processes in the environment;
  • Biomonitoring of environmental pollution using various types of biological monitors;
  • Assessment of pollutants’ impact on ecological state of ecosystems and human health;
  • Risk factors related to exposures to pollutants (chemical stressors, radiations, noise) in outdoor and indoor environments.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
