Special Issue Information
Traditional medicine is practiced in various cultures. Often it has had a long history; for example, traditional Chinese medicine has developed for over 2000 years and has contributed to Chinese prosperity. In the Western world, traditional medicine is more and more valued and the use of traditional medicine is on the rise. One of the impediments is that, in the West, knowledge of traditional medicine is lacking. This has led to adverse effects due to the improper use of traditional medicine, which harms its introduction. This Special Issue is dedicated to further unravel the molecular mechanism of the mode of action and toxicity of traditional medicine, to connect traditional medicine to Western medicine. This is in line with the “Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property” adopted at the 61st World Health Assembly in 2008, which states that traditional medicine should be further developed by stimulation of research and innovation. Previous studies demonstrate the broadness of pallet of the bioactives, as well as their intricate interplay in traditional medicine, aimed to cure diseases with minimal side effects. Western medicine will benefit from further unraveling of these interactions, which will also help to fully appreciate traditional medicine in the West.Prof. Dr. Guido Haenen
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.
