Twenty years! Can you believe it? In 2015 we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of our journal Molecules. The growth of Molecules has only been possible because authors, reviewers, editors, and all people working in some way for the journal have joined their efforts for years. Thank you for your confidence and your enthusiasm.
Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049) was initiated by Dr. Shu-Kun Lin in Switzerland in 1996 with the additional original idea of encouraging the repository and exchange of chemical samples. The early days were not easy, but in Volume 2, you could already read 232 pages covering an editorial, 26 interesting research papers, and 42 short notes belonging to the MolBank section (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/molecules/sections/molbank). What a successful road since that time! Indeed, volume 18 (2013) was completed with 15,803 pages and we can reasonably foresee that volume 19 (2014) will surpass 20,000 pages.
To mark that important milestone, a special issue entitled “Recent Advances in Medicinal Chemistry” is being launched. On behalf of the members of the Advisory Board created for the occasion, I kindly invite all groups involved in the field to contribute by submitting an up-to-date review, with the aim of providing to our readers a comprehensive survey of the many topics covered by the discipline.
