Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Peptides are compounds with a veriety of biolgical properties that offer multiple applications. Since 1963, when solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) was introduced by Merriefield, a great deal of effort has been expended on the development of this method. The biomedical applications of peptides are somewhat limited, due to their poor oral bioavibility, chemical instability, or low membrane permeability. However, thanks to the efforts of many scientific groups, many peptides are currently under clinical trials and some have been registered as drugs.

In view of the recent developments, research articles covering all areas of peptide chemistry are welcome for publication in this Special Issue of Molecules.

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. Molecules 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.
