Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In 2013, we issued a call for manuscript submissions to a special issue of Marine Drugs dedicated to marine fatty acids, Marine Fatty Acids-2013. This initial call resulted in the publication of 14 invited and offered manuscripts, including two review articles. The breadth of subject matter covered was considerable and included articles focusing on the in vitro and in vivo biological activities of marine-derived fatty acids and lipids (e.g., anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties), the clinical effects of dietary omega-3 fatty acid supplements, and further contributions devoted to fatty acid biosynthesis and lipid metabolism pathways of marine organisms. Following the success of the special issue in 2013, as Guest Editors we call again on researchers and scholars in the field to contribute manuscripts to be considered for inclusion in this second Marine Fatty Acids special issue of the journal. In particular, we welcome original research articles, comprehensive reviews and timely mini-reviews related to all aspects of marine fatty acids. Accepted manuscripts will be published Open Access.
