Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last decade, emerging metabolomics science has become a powerful analytical tool for elucidating disease pathogenesis. Further, it has led to the discovery of early and accurate biomarkers for many human diseases. These advancements have titled metabolomics science as the “stethoscope for the 21st century’’. Unfortunately, Women’s Health has historically been a late beneficiary of breakthroughs in the sciences. Given the fact that women constitute roughly half of the population and more importantly influence the health and well-being of all fetuses and well into adulthood, understanding women’s health remains imperative. Pregnancy disorders are characterized by enormous pathogenic complexity which makes these ideally suited for metabolomic interrogation! Additionally, maternal morbidity and mortality rates are on the rise. The same can be said of other disorders of women such as gynecologic cancers. The deployment of metabolomic tools to address the challenges in diagnosing common disorders such as premature cervical shortening, fetal growth restriction, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, prematurity, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, PID, and pelvic disorders is warranted.

In this Special Issue entitled “Metabolomic Profiling in Women’s Reproductive Health Research”, the journal ‘International Journal of Molecular Sciences’ issues a call for manuscripts that uses metabolomic approaches to probe and answer pressing questions in Women’s Health. Reviews and perspectives as well as original data are welcome. We hope this Special Issue will build on preexisting pioneering work in this consequential scientific area and serve to heighten interest and energize both new and established researchers working in the field Women’s 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.
