Special Issue Information
The field of metabolomics is rapidly expanding and finds applications in research and development in different areas, from life sciences to biomarker discovery, evidence-based interventions and personalized nutrition, to food and plant sciences. Still, in the core of a metabolomics study lays the analytical methodology, developed to produce the data. Technologies are still evolving and the analytical toolbox remains in the centre of efforts to promote technology growth and maturity of the field. The metabolomics research community remains in need of high quality methods and protocols for each step of the process: from sample collection to laboratory analysis, data treatment data mining, statistical and biochemical pathway analysis and translation to new knowledge on the studied biology. These methods should be debated and harmonised, and should also incorporate quality control (QC) and quality assessment (QA) procedures to ensure that the provided new knowledge is reliable.
The current Special Issue invites papers on all aspects of metabolomics research with an emphasis on analytical methodologies and workflows applied for the analysis of various matrices, studies on sample preparation, analytical procedures for targeted and untargeted approaches, developments in multi-analyte quantification with applications in health sciences, nutrition, and food science, amongst others. In particular, this second part of the Special Issue entitled “Metabolomics Methodologies and Applications” welcomes reports on the development and implementation of QC/QA schemes in metabolomics.

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.
