The presence of veterinary medicines in food of animal origin due to their use for animal treatments or of prophylactic is well known and controlled. However, the presence of human pharmaceuticals and veterinary medicines in food and the environment as emerging contaminants is not so well known. More research and publications are required in this field, while work conducted in different parts of the world is needed to compile information on compounds, groups, activity, and concentration, to be able to understand, face, evaluate, and determine the possible risk for animals and humans.
In this Special Issue, we seek manuscripts which cover analytical methods and data on the presence of pharmaceuticals employed in human and veterinary medicine in food matrices and environmental samples. Potential topics include but are not limited to aspects regarding sampling procedures, sample preparation protocols, and analytical methods such as HPLC-DAD, HPLC-MS/MS, GC-MS, and GC-MS/MS with a low limit of detection or quantification (ng/L or ng/g) in a sample. Without doubt, manuscripts on monitoring studies of environmental and food matrices, including a representative number of samples, with positive results on the presence of pharmaceuticals, will also be welcome in this Special Issue.

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.
