Special Issue Information
This Special Issue, "New insights into Microgravity and Space Biology" collects original research articles, reviews, and short communications, aiming 1. to collect the most recent findings on microgravity-induced effects on cells; 2. to highlight possible strategies to protect against the space environment; 3. to discuss possible limits and advantages of experimental approaches (e.g., real or simulated microgravity); and 4. to review the present knowledge of space biology in different cell types (prokaryotes and eukaryotes, animals, and plants).
Dr. Maria A. Mariggiò
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. Cells 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 2400 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.
