Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As we age, the body changes. Nutritional behaviors and attitudes evolve with aging, which may lead to age-related diseases. The question is why some people live longer without health problems and some develop diseases earlier during adulthood. It is known that healthy aging proceeds with changes in genome, but this is also modified by autocrine, paracrine, and endocrine activities in the body as well as the environment, which leads to increased oxidative stress and accelerated inflammation. So far, different metabolic pathways may lead to better and worse aging processes. Obesity, hypertension, and insulin resistance are seen while we age. What is more, they are characterized by a low-grade chronic inflammatory state and accelerated prooxidant status. Thus, we encourage research spanning from basic science to different clinical disciplines to participate in this Special Issue to serve as a platform to discuss metabolic pathways and metabolites which can have an influence on successful aging. We would also like to discuss age-related metabolic disorders and their metabolic pathways due to environmental/nutritional status, which are caused by inflammation and/or oxidative stress.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. 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 2700 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.
