The exposure of cells and organisms to oxidative stress is an everyday parameter built into their life and evolution for thousands or even millions of years. From simple cellular systems to complex biological systems like tissues or organs, it is important to know how each system responds to oxidative injury to DNA, proteins, or lipids. In addition, which are the biological defense mechanisms and the final short- and long-term effects? Are there any methodologies to follow these late effects?
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts dealing with the mechanisms or phenomena that can lead to any type of oxidative lesions in any biological system, or even methods papers. We live in the era of omics, therefore, teams working on this field by the means of bioinformatics and any type of omics are welcome.
Nowadays, most people accept the notion that we are what we eat. Groups working on natural antioxidants and on the role of nutrition in the overall oxidative stress status are also invited to contribute a research or review paper.
Last, but not least, intriguing questions have been raised over the last years related to the possible applications of all of the above knowledge in the clinic towards the cure or beneficial treatment of various diseases.

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. Antioxidants 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 1600 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.
