Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A warm welcome from the editorial team of this Special Issue of Water. Water (H2O) is an integral and essential part of life in the biosphere, and this journal explores essential research aspects of water, covering areas such as resource management, governance, scarcity, food risk, water quality, recycling and more. In its wide scope, the current Special Issue will focus on developments in optical and electrochemical sensing platforms for water quality and contamination. Aquatic pollution is a major global concern that causes water scarcity, food risk, and health risks to all living species. Key aquatic pollutants range from organic aromatics, organometallics, heavy metals, plastics and drugs to organic and inorganic fertilizers, pesticides, etc. There is, therefore, an immense need to develop straightforward and economical analytical platforms for the rapid analysis of water quality, for the present and the future. The scope of this Special Issue is to promote novel optical and electroanalytical platforms proposed for assaying water quality in environmental and food samples. With this scope, we are inviting original papers and mini-reviews tackling novel research ideas and sustainable commercial values for publication in this Special Issue

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. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
