Special Issue Information
I am delighted to announce a call for submissions to a Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, entitled “Novel Molecular Approaches to Skeletal Muscle Disease and Disuse”. Muscle-specific diseases with a variety of genetic and acquired causes, as well as aging and metabolic disorders, impair the function of skeletal muscle. This has consequences that extend far beyond muscle itself, with a systemic impact on the quality of life. Exercise can be an important non-pharmacological therapeutic intervention counteracting the effects of disuse; however, mechanistic knowledge on muscle physiopathology can improve its applicability and ensure greater success. With this Special Issue, we aim to illuminate the impacts of omics technologies on the system analysis of muscle disease. We are looking for transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomic studies which tackle different aspects of muscle disuse and therapeutic interventions. In addition, we intend to show how new molecular approaches, technologies, and disease models are channeling invaluable information that supports translational research and novel therapeutic approaches.
Following the success of Volume 1 of Special Issue “Novel Molecular Approaches to Skeletal Muscle Disease and Disuse”, we reopen this issue again in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms, ISSN 1422-0067, IF 5.924, JCR Category Q1). This second Special Issue will host original research articles, as well as reviews and meta-analyses, of omics data on all aspects of muscle disease and disuse.

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.
