Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The purpose of this Special Issue is to present the latest research Advances in Bone Growth, Development and Metabolism.

Bone tissue is a living, metabolically active tissue that plays a major role in regulating electrolyte concentrations in the body. Bone tissue is a metabolic depot of ions, mainly calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Bone tissue and calcium homeostasis in the body depends on the balance of bone resorption and bone formation. Bone tissue undergoes remodeling during an individual's lifetime. Bone modeling continues throughout life with varying degrees of severity. It is dependent on hormones, mainly parathormone and calcitonin. In trabecular bone, the synthesis and resorption of bone tissue occur on the surface of the trabeculae. In the case of compact bone, internal bone remodeling consists of the resorption of bone tissue, followed by the formation of new Haversian systems.

This Special Issue invites researchers to submit original research papers and reviews on all aspects of bone metabolism. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) anatomy and pathology of the skeletal system, including selected concepts from orthopedics, traumatology and rheumatology; (2) bone grafts, their properties, remodeling of bone grafts; (3) growth and modeling of bone tissue, bone tissue remodeling, biochemical markers of bone tissue remodeling (osteonectin, osteocalcin); (4) distology and histopathology of bone tissue; (5) basic studies of bone metabolism related to cell biology and molecular biology; (6) preclinical studies in metabolic diseases and bone homeostasis; (7) pathophysiology of metabolic bone diseases (osteoporosis); (8) disorders of the immune system in relation to bone tissue; (9) and genetic bone 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
