Special Issue Information
Biologically active compounds capable of affecting a living organism, tissue, or cell play an important role in treating and preventing various diseases. They can, therefore, promote a significant improvement in the quality of life and increase life expectancy. These compounds represent synthetically produced substances and/or naturally occurring ones in plants, animals, or other types of living organisms.
The Special Issue entitled "Development and Synthesis of Biologically Active Compounds" will present new advances in the design, synthesis, and in vitro and in vivo biological evaluation of bioactive compounds that can lead to the development of natural or synthetic active molecules looking for promising drugs.
This Special Issue welcomes papers addressing different synthetic strategies, isolation from natural sources, biological screening of compound libraries, or in silico approaches.

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.
