Marine ecosystems, covering 70% of the surface of the earth, possess great biological diversity, providing interests for researchers over past decades. Due to their characteristic envrionments, marine natural products have been regarded as a highlighted source for the discovery of structurally and biologically novel drug candidates.
To overcome challenges in structure elucidation due to their diversity, marine natural products scientists have developed various chemical methodologies and recent advances in chemoinformatics tools, genome sequencing, and quantum-based computational analysis now provide combinatorial approches for the structure determination.
In this Special Issue, we invite academic and industry scientists to submit articles from marine-natural-products-driven studies, highlighting challenges in structural determination with biological activities.

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. Marine Drugs 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.
