Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ovarian cancer is one of the most aggressive neoplastic diseases in women. It is composed of distinct types of carcinoma with unique clinicopathological and molecular features. The genome-wide molecular genetic landscape in various histological subtypes of ovarian cancer has been recently revealed through the effort of The Cancer Genome Atlas and other investigator-initiated genomic analyses. Those database resources provide an unprecedented opportunity for basic research to understand pathogenesis of ovarian cancer and for translational research that may lead to new diagnosis and treatment. There are several prioritized research areas that need to be addressed in this devastating disease. Thus, this special issue offers a timely opportunity to publish those studies that aim at exploring the molecular and translational aspects of ovarian cancer. Both original research and review articles are all welcome, especially for those articles describing genes and pathways that may serve as new targets for experimental therapeutics and future clinical trials. It is expected that this new special issue will become a useful resource for all investigators and clinicians who are interested in ovarian cancer research and will inspire new research directions in the years to come.

Submission

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.
