Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The purpose of this Special Issue is to present a series of articles (both reviews and original research) from experts in non-coding RNA research across Germany. We invite the submission of articles that highlight the history and deepen our current understanding of the role of non-coding RNAs (both small and long) in multiple disciplines and organisms ranging from bacteria to plant and human cells. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the role of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) in:

  • aging and senescence;
  • cell fate decision and differentiation;
  • cell communication and signaling;
  • cell growth, proliferation, and death;
  • cell movement and motility;
  • cell and tissue development;
  • diseases (e.g., cardiovascular diseases, cancers, neurodegenerative diseases); and
  • immune cell function and immune escape.

In addition, we invite the submission of manuscripts discussing state-of-the-art ncRNA technologies and developments in ncRNA diagnostics and therapeutics.

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. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
