Secondary metabolites play fundamental role in chemical ecology, and humanity have long learned to exploit their properties to fight diseases, produce dyes for painting and food colouring as well as essential ingredients for cosmetics, fragrances and food flavouring. Despite the enormous economic importance of secondary metabolites to our society, there are still numerous secondary metabolites yet to be discovered and chemically characterised. In addition, our current knowledge on secondary metabolism and its regulation is still very limited. Therefore, this special issue of Metabolites will be dedicated for publishing current advances on the discovery and characterisation of novel secondary metabolites, elucidation of metabolic pathways for biosynthesis of secondary metabolites any other aspect of the secondary metabolism in different organisms.

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. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
