Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to explore the complex interplay between dietary components, the brain–gut axis, and the microbiome with a focus on nutrigenetics. It seeks to unravel how dietary components, including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals, influence not only the digestive system but also neurological health, with an expanded view of developmental disorders and obesity. This issue will delve into the metabolic pathways through which dietary components affect both the nervous and digestive systems and their pivotal role in the microbiota–gut–brain axis. This is especially pertinent for understanding the ethology and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, developmental disorders, and obesity-related complications. The objective of this Special Issue is to bridge significant gaps in the literature, particularly in the areas of molecular mechanisms, genetic modifiers, and the interplay between diet, microbiome, and disease states. The goal is to present a comprehensive overview of the current research and identify new avenues for exploring the impact of nutrients on a wide range of health conditions and diseases.

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.
