Special Issue "Bioactive Lipids and Lipidomics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 March 2015)
Recent advances in technologies for lipid analysis have contributed to the consolidation of lipidomics as a distinct discipline in molecular science. This technological development has paralleled the discovery of a broad range of cellular functions associated with lipids, from cell signaling and membrane dynamics, to intercellular communication and the regulation of gene expression. Lipid molecules have been identified as therapeutic targets, nutraceuticals and disease biomarkers.
The scope of this special issue is to cover the progress in Lipid Science & Technology, with regard to the state-of-the-art research in bioactive lipids and lipidomics.
Authors are invited to submit original research and review articles. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Bioactive lipids in cell biology
- Lipid molecules as therapeutic agents and nutraceuticals
- Lipids as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of disease
- New advances in lipid analysis and lipidomics
- Lipids in systems biology and metabolic networks

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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences 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 1800 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.
