Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In 2013, we ran a Special Issue inviting review and research articles within the area of “Regulation of Membrane Trafficking and Its Potential Implications” (http://www.mdpi.com/si/ijms/membrane-trafficking/). This issue was extremely successful. In total, we published seventeen articles, and have received a very high number of downloads. 2013 also saw the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to three of the pioneers in the membrane traffic field, namely James Rothman, Randy Schekman, and Thomas Südhof. Therefore, with the field now being in full prominence, we have decided to run another Special Issue along the same theme this year. We would particularly welcome articles showing novel links between membrane trafficking and other cellular events, articles describing the characterization of new regulatory machinery, and short reviews giving new perspectives on the regulation of membrane trafficking processes. As before, we also welcome articles describing membrane trafficking events from a wide variety of organisms. We look forward to receiving your submissions, and hope that this Special Issue is as successful as the previous one.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
