Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to present this special issue of “Feature Papers” in the newly launched Metabolites journal.  Metabolites is a new, international, open-access and peer-reviewed Journal that publishes original research and scholarship contributing to the expanding field of metabolomics and our understanding of metabolism.  Metabolites intends to inform and to stimulate interest and debate in advancing the scientific basis of the discipline.

In recognition of this new beginning Metabolites will publish a “Feature Papers” Special Issue. The scope will fall within the range of the mission of the Journal, but is not limited to any particular themes. The following general topics indicate the possible scope of this special issue, but these are not intended to be all inclusive. They are: novel approaches and technology in metabolomics; advances in data processing and analysis; metabolomics and biomarker discovery; nutritional metabolomics; and plant and environmental metabolomics.

The deadline for submission is May 15th 2012. We look forward with enthusiasm to hearing from you and thank you for supporting the Journal.
