Over the past 40 years, the marine environment has become a valuable reservoir of new pharmaceutical drug leads as a result of the identification of new and unprecedented natural products from numerous phyla, geographic locations, depths, etc. The biodiscovery of new marine-derived, natural product drugs relies on several key areas of technology, including separation science and cell, molecular and chemical biology.
Another key technology is spectroscopy. Instrumental analysis to screen for, and subsequently identify, natural product structures using spectroscopic and spectrometric tools satisfies this need. Advances in spectroscopic techniques, data processing and database design are reported constantly, with applications of these advances in marine natural products chemistry following soon thereafter. This Special Issue of Marine Drugs welcomes all submissions relating to marine natural products chemistry, with a focus on recent developments in spectroscopic techniques and their application to the identification of marine-derived drugs. The use of any form of spectroscopy and/or spectrometry falls within the scope of this issue, and both research articles and reviews would be welcome. If your marine natural products research has utilized advances in spectroscopic techniques, I hope you will consider publishing this work in this Special Issue of Marine Drugs.

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.
