We are currently celebrating the 60th anniversary of the first public announcement by the Laurate Nobel Prize, R. Bruce Merrifield, of the solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) technique at the Federation Meeting of 1962 in Atlantic City. The first publication (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 1963, 85, 2149–2154) took place one year later.
Although the strategy initially raised several critics and skeptics, mainly from the most established peptide chemists, over the years the SPPS has become the chemical method of choice for the preparation of peptides at the milligram scale in a research mode to multiKg as an active pharmaceutical ingredient.
This scientific “miracle” has been possible thanks to the contributions of a considerable number of colleagues who, both in academia and in industry, have optimized both the synthesis and purification steps. Many of these chemical advances have been published in scientific journals, but they are scattered throughout the vast network of scientific information.
The objective of this Special Issue of Materials and Protocols entitled "Practical Protocols for Solid-Phase Peptide Synthesis 4.0" is to bring together the state of the art in SPPS in a single publication. "Practical Protocols for Solid-Phase Peptide Synthesis 4.0" will cover all the practical aspects of peptide synthesis, purification, and characterization, including: resins; protecting groups; coupling agents; cleavage cocktails and their scavengers; solvents for synthesis and purification; synthesis of linear, cyclic, stapled, branched peptides with post-translational modifications; peptide–drug conjugates; and all purification and analysis methods. Special consideration is taken for green chemistry approaches.
Hopefully, the scientific community will share those little tricks that make the difference, so that in the end, the target peptide is obtained with great yield and purity.

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. Methods and Protocols is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
