Special Issue Information
Metabolism is the chemical process that occurs in cells and living organisms to produce substances and energy needed to sustain life. Metabolomics focuses primarily on small molecular metabolites. The metabolome is considered to be more phenotypic than the genome because metabolites are variable depending on disease and environment. However, we do not know what and how many metabolites are present in the cell. Metabolomics deals with compounds that are widely different in their physicochemical properties. Advances in mass spectrometry have made it possible to measure a large number of metabolites. Even so, it is not possible to obtain the whole picture in a single analysis. There are many challenges in mass spectrometry, such as the certainty of metabolite identification and precise control of quantitative data. However, mass spectrometry has revealed many biological phenomena through metabolomics. In this Special Issue, we will discuss the latest information on metabolomics via mass spectrometry.

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. 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 2200 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.
