High salt concentration in the soil solution is widespread, and the area of saline land makes up to 6% of arable land. Salinity adversely affects plant growth and development by reducing availability of water (osmotic component of salinity) and due to toxicity of ions (especially sodium) that gradually penetrate into the plant tissues. In general, the negative impacts of salinity lead to a decline in plant productivity, which makes it necessary to improve their salt-tolerance. Although numerous reports addressed molecular regulatory mechanisms involved in plant salt tolerance, many questions remain unanswered dictating the need for their further in-depth studies. In this Special Issue, articles (original research papers, future perspectives, hypotheses, opinions, reviews) will present the newest results of investigations and findings in the above-presented area. We invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue. Submissions should be related to themes including but not restricted to:
- salinity sensing as a starting point for turning on regulatory mechanisms involved in adaptation to salt stress;
- transcription factors that control plant responses to salt-stress and their target genes;
- the role plant hormones in inducing regulatory mechanisms of salt tolerance;
- ion transporters responsible for maintenance of ion homeostasis under salinity;
- importance of antioxidant systems for salt tolerance;
- mechanisms controlling water relations and osmotic adjustment under salinity;
- involvement of aquaporins in adaptation to salinity.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
