Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Separations has launched a new collection of feature papers in the field of environmental analysis to promote the publication of high-quality original research and review articles on basic and applied analytical methods that address environmental matrices. This Topical Collection is dedicated to publishing studies regarding innovative sample preparation methodologies, monitoring studies in fields or in laboratory scale experiences. Analytical methods to monitor environmental matrices, such as soils, sewage, wastewaters, surface, ground and drinking water are welcome. Innovation in analytical methods regarding monitoring the (bio)degradation of pharmaceuticals and pesticides should also be considered. Liquid, gas and supercritical fluid chromatography are separation techniques that form the basis of this Topical Collection, with a special focus on two-dimensional liquid chromatography (2D-LC) and chiral analyses.

Contributions to this Topical Collection should be always related to new or innovative separation methods or principles. Research articles that aim to solve separation problems within emerging green technology with absence of hazard solvents and minimal waste production will be most welcome. Review papers should provide a critical assessment of state-of-the-art developments in a specific topic related to novel methodologies for environmental analysis. All manuscripts will undergo a rigorous peer-review process to be considered for publication in this Topical Collection.

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 collection 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. Separations 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 2600 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.
