Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biochemical diagnosing of human diseases benefits historically from the analysis of and interpretation of metabolite levels in biofluids. They play key diagnostic roles in major diseases ranging from diabetes to a large group of individually rare inherited metabolic diseases. Clinical use of metabolic intermediate levels in biofluid is complicated by many factors known to the biochemist from sampling and metabolite stability up to the heterogeneity of clinical cohorts in biomarker studies. These issues hinder the widespread use of metabolomic data in clinical diagnosing. The volume of the data available for clinical interpretation by the current metabolomic analysis methods allows us to discover data analysis tools that can substantially help with this difficult task.

This Special Issue aims to address and solve the problems that hamper the widespread use of metabolomic data in clinical decisions.

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.
