Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Products of natural origin are derived from plants, minerals, animals, or microorganisms. Nature has been a source of active ingredients, from ancient times to the present day. In addition, there is currently a tendency to use this type of more natural substances.

Natural products, especially those from plants, have attracted significant interest since their composition contains compounds with interesting bioactive properties for health. It is therefore essential to understand and explore the chemical composition of these natural products in order to be able to elucidate the molecules responsible for biological activity. In addition, it is also important to know the interactions of cellular molecules that carry out the biological processes essential for the cell's functions and maintenance.

We are pleased to invite you to present original research and review articles on new advancements in the development and application of natural products.

This Special Issue aims to contribute to the knowledge of different substances of natural origin in their chemical composition and potential biological activities.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
