Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A growing number of studies underline the diversity in potential bioactive compounds present in agri-food matrices that, if extracted, can have an immense added value in multiple applications and can be exploited in the functional food, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, and cosmeceutical industries. Increasing scientific evidence highlights the role of food-related bioactive compounds in the prevention or amelioration of some diseases. In this regard, efficient and sustainable extraction procedures, followed by comprehensive chemical and functional characterization with high-throughput bioanalytical and omics technologies, represent significant methodological advances to scientifically support health claims of new food-related bioactive molecules.

In this regard, the increasingly frequent multi-omics approaches, such as Foodomics, are contributing to deciphering the molecular mechanisms that underlie the beneficial effects of dietary phytochemicals in preventing the initiation and/or development of major pathologies such as cancer and neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, among others.

This Special Issue is a unique opportunity to gather updated state-of-the-art research studying the recovery of bioactive compounds from food and agri-food sources and their bioactive characterization, making use of the latest extraction, bioanalytical, and omics technologies.

Dr. Gerardo Alvarez-Rivera

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.
