Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit research to this Special Issue of Metabolites focused on “Mass Spectrometry-based Metabolomics as Tools in Pharmaceutical and Biological Analysis.” The development of reliable mass spectrometry-based metabolomics workflows is a crucial mission in pharmaceutical and biomedical analyses. With the fast progression of sample pretreatment methods, novel separation and detection technologies, and data analysis pipelines, the metabolomics strategy would benefit researchers in terms of helping them discover metabolites in complicated biological samples and reveal associated metabolic networks behind diseases and medications. The improvement of mass spectrometry-based metabolomics would accelerate pharmaceutical and biological research.

This Special Issue seeks novel research contributions in, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Innovative analytical methods and pipelines for metabolomics or lipidomics.
  • Biological and pharmaceutical applications of metabolomics or lipidomics.

We welcome and look forward to your submissions.

Dr. Hsiaowei Liao
Guest Editor

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 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 2000 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.
