Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of vibrational spectroscopy applied to different disciplines in life sciences has given rise to thousands of papers. In most cases, these papers are dispersed in several different journals with individual scientific focus. Consequently, from time to time, there is a need for a Special Issue to provide a broad survey and address various aspects in the field of vibrational spectroscopy. For the readership, this Special Issue will provide an attractive opportunity to obtain, more easily, information concerning the different facets of both infrared and Raman spectroscopy. For the authors, it will be an appropriate occasion to make their results and techniques more visible, and to show that they are active members in the field of vibrational spectroscopy in life sciences.

This Special Issue will contain contributions discussing all the different aspects broadly indicated by the keywords. Review articles by experts in the field will also be welcome.

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. 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).
