This Special Issue is dedicated to celebration of the 10th anniversary of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989). To commemorate this milestone, we are requesting submission of reviews of the field and research papers that are "pushing the boundaries of metabolomics and lipidomics". The scope of these manuscripts should fall within the range of the mission of the journal, but is not limited to any particular themes: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/metabolites/about.
Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989) is an open-access journal of metabolism and metabolomics, supported by an outstanding Editorial Board composed of high-profile researchers. It just received its First Impact Factor of 3.303, and is indexed by the Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science), PubMed Central, Scopus (CiteScore in 2018: 3.75), and other important databases. In addition, the Metabolomics Society (MetSoc) is now an affiliated society member of Metabolites.
We look forward to your contribution. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be 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. Metabolites 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 1600 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.

Title: Metabolomics and lipidomics: expanding the landscape of exercise biology

Abstract: Dynamic changes in circulating and tissue metabolites and lipids occur in response to exercise-induced metabolic and mechanical stress. The application of metabolomics and lipidomics to unravel the complex physiological responses to exercise have expanded over the last decade thanks to major analytical advancements, with most exercise-related studies to date conducted in humans. Experimental and analytical considerations, as well as complementary studies in animal models, are warranted to help overcome challenges associated with large human inter-individual variability and decipher the metabolic health-promoting effects of exercise. We discuss recent advancements in human and animal exercise metabolomics and lipidomics in this review, as well as highlight technical considerations and key remaining knowledge gaps to expand the landscape of exercise biology.
