Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on natural bioactive compounds is intended to offer a wide panorama of the potential applications of these compounds toward all human diseases.

Natural bioactive compounds, which include primary and secondary metabolites, are small molecules produced naturally by several plants. Natural bioactive compounds have a wide range of possible applications and can be useful in the treatment and management of various kinds of human diseases due to their outstanding biological properties. Moreover, bioactive compounds and pharmaceuticals derived from natural products have received increasing attention due to their considerable benefits for human health. This Special Issue will shape the future research direction of important natural products, as well as related bioactive compounds. Our purpose is to feature high-quality, advanced research and knowledge contributed by various research groups working on natural products from around the world.

The scope of this Special Issue encompasses natural products, synthetic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, and other related research fields. Original research and review articles on all topics in these research fields are invited. I look forward to receiving your submissions.

Dr. Antonio Palumbo Piccionello
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. 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.
