Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Topical Collection “Feature Papers in Autophagy” aims to collect high-quality research articles, review articles, and communications (including opinion and hypothesis papers) in all fields of autophagy, with a focus on molecular and cell biological research. Since the aim of this Topical Collection is to illustrate, through selected works, frontier research in autophagy, we encourage Editorial Board Members of Cells or relevant experts and colleagues to contribute papers reflecting the latest progress in their particular research field. Please kindly note that all invited papers will be published online free of charge once accepted.

Topics include, without being limited to:

  • Degradation and maintenance;
  • Adaptation;
  • Oxidative stress;
  • Cell signaling;
  • Proteostasis;
  • Development;
  • Physiology;
  • Disease.
