Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Marine organisms are characterized by a great diversity of lipidomes, which is mirrored by the wide range of lipid classes with different structural features and specificity of their lipid signatures. Lipids from marine organisms are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which possesses well-known health-promoting effects. However, the structure-activity relationship of bioactive lipids and their synergistic effects remain poorly understood. Despite the nutritional value and healthy properties of marine lipids, the complexity of marine lipidomes hampers the data availability on the detailed characterization of the lipid signature of marine organisms. The high complexity of their distinct lipid profiles can only be unveiled by using modern lipidomics approaches. Lipidomics is an undoubted tool for the detection, characterization, and quantification of lipid species from marine sources.

This Special Issue of Marine Drugs devoted to “Lipidomic Studies for the Characterisation of Marine Lipids” aims to highlight recent advances in the field of marine lipidomics and provide a comprehensive overview on the characterization of the lipid profile from distinct marine organisms using a lipidomic approach. As guest editors, we kindly invite colleagues working on marine lipidomics to contribute with manuscripts to this Special Issue of Marine Drugs with the aim of filling the existing gap in the knowledge of the detailed lipidome fingerprinting of marine organisms.

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. Marine Drugs is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
