Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neurogenetic diseases are central and peripheral nervous system disorders caused by molecular defects in heritable material, usually DNA. An increased focus on neurogenetics in neurology is timely and critical. There is a relevant reason to hope for treatments and therapies in the coming years that will restore significant function to people affected by neurogenetic diseases. Thus, this Research Topic will include manuscripts that describe genotypes and phenotypes of the different forms of genetic diseases affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems, increase our understanding of their pathogenesis, and articulate strategies to use this knowledge to deliver novel therapeutic tools. The overall aim is to offer a broad perspective of our current knowledge on this topic and to underline the future need to develop therapies that reduce this unmet medical problem of our society.

Prof. Dr. Antonio Orlacchio

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
