Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Analytical tools for the detection and quantification of biomarkers are, nowadays, very challenging since these compounds, present in accessible body fluids or tissues, can be used to reveal and diagnose alterations or dysfunctions in many physio-pathological states. In this context, sampling methods, pre-analytical treatments, separation and detection approaches are crucial to relevantly study biomarkers in either human diseases or experimental models.

We would like to invite colleagues to contribute with original research articles and reviews to the present Special Issue that aims to show the broad spectrum of analytical possibilities in biomarker monitoring. We are greatly interested in papers describing new methods with a focus on robustness in case of highly original approaches. The development of methods dealing with new potential biomarkers in preclinical or diagnosis studies in any field are also welcome.

Dr. Sandrine Parrot

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. Separations 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 350 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.
