Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The research featured in this Special Issue offers invaluable insights into the physiological functions, pathogenesis, and pathophysiology relevant to gynecological health and disease. We are particularly focused on the role the human the microbiome and immune system play in women’s health. Examples of topics of interest include the impact of the female reproductive microbiome on female reproductive function; infertility and gynecological cancers; as well as microbial infections and immune tolerance during pregnancy. Some immune cells in the maternal immune system, such as uterine natural killer cells (uNK), killer immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) and human leukocyte antigens (HLA), are also of interest.

The International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) provides a platform for scientists to disseminate their high-quality scientific findings in this emerging field of the intricate connections between the microbiome, immune system, and various gynecological entities. Researchers are encouraged to submit articles that incorporate biomolecular experiments or data, rather than purely clinical or model-based studies.

By exploring the biomolecular data and experimental evidence, scientists have the opportunity to unveil potential pathways and future therapeutic strategies.

By advancing scientific knowledge, this Special Issue of IJMS contributes to the investigation of pathways, accurate diagnosis, and development of novel therapeutic approaches to promote gynecological health.

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.
