Antioxidants, which protect against reactive oxygen species, are vital for aerobe life. The knowledge on how antioxidants act has drastically improved over the years. Initially, it was believed that antioxidants only needed to scavenge free radicals. In the current concept, based on molecular mechanisms of action, scavenging is only one of the aspects of the biological activity of antioxidants. Another facet is that all antioxidants were considered to be equal, while now it is realized that each antioxidant has a unique biochemical profile. This issue is dedicated to recent breakthroughs in the knowledge of antioxidants’ molecular mechanism of action, and the clinical impact of antioxidants.

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 papers will be 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.
