Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over recent years, there have been extensive method developments to analyze the metabolomes of various biofluids and tissues. However, given the high diversity of metabolites present over a wide concentration range in biological samples, one of the analytical challenges is to ideally cover the entire metabolic space (metabolome) using complementary techniques and methods. However, this multiplatform strategy is time and cost consuming and therefore needs to be optimized to recover the largest possible amount of chemical information, relevant to the biological context, in a reasonable timeframe, to be compatible with large-scale studies. In addition, such a multiplatform strategy generates complex and massive data that will need dedicated management and workflows for data treatments.

This Special Issue of Metabolites, “Metabolic Profiling of Biofluids and Tissues Using Multiplatform Approaches”, will first be dedicated to cutting-edge methods and technology developments for multiplatform metabolomics/lipidomics approaches both from a fundamental as well as an applied point of view. Second, it will address the question of data treatment and fusion for such a strategy. The topics that will be more particularly covered by this Special Issue include (though not exclusively) sample preparation dedicated to multiplatform approaches, choice of technologies and methods for multiplatform profiling and annotation, high-throughput, standardization and quality control, data extraction and treatments, data management, data fusion and integration, and analytical redundancy management.

Manuscripts dealing with other challenging issues are also highly relevant.

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.
