Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Obesity has long been a public health threat because it is closely associated with metabolic comorbidities, including type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases. Therapeutic approaches to prevent and/or treat obesity have been developed and employed. Recent research has provided evidence that numerous potential materials from natural sources, including natural plants such as herbs, fruits, and vegetables, and natural dietary compounds as well as their active compounds might be useful in preventing the development of obesity and its related metabolic diseases. This Special Issue will focus on understanding novel and comprehensive metabolic pathways, as well as how natural products influence obesity and its associated metabolic disturbances.

This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, entitled “Natural Products in Obesity: Novel Strategies and Molecular Mechanisms 2.0”, aims to solicit original research papers or review articles on the current state of the research in this field, including both discovery and preclinical studies.

We look forward to your contributions to this research field.

Dr. Eugene Chang
Guest Editor

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.
