Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Impact of Environmental Contaminants in Diseases of Aquatic Organisms and Human Health
Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Acute Toxicity of the Foreign Compounds
The pollution of the environment and especially of aquatic environments is a major research topic. Environmental contaminants penetrate and spread through trophic chains, causing harmful effects both during development (as in larvae and fry) and in the adult phase.
The number of new environmental contaminants relevant to aquatic environments is constantly increasing. Moreover, their ability to cause toxic effects in combination with other pollutants also poses a real threat to human health.
In particular, we call for review articles and original research that pay attention to the effects of emerging contaminants on marine organisms and the combined effects that several contaminants together may cause and the pathways which are involved.

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. Toxics 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.
