Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue delves into the intricate interplay between diet and oxidative stress, highlighting the pivotal role of dietary choices in shaping the body’s oxidative balance. Oxidative stress, resulting from the imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and the body’s antioxidant defenses, is implicated in numerous chronic diseases. This Special Issue aims to elucidate how dietary patterns influence oxidative stress and subsequent health outcomes in the face of the escalating global prevalence of chronic diseases.

This Special Issue will explore the specific roles of dietary components in either contributing to or mitigating oxidative stress. Emphasizing the importance of a well-balanced diet rich in antioxidants like vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, selenium, and zinc, the research contrasts this with diets high in processed foods, refined sugars, and saturated fats, associated with promoting oxidative stress.

The call for contributions extends to various article types, including original research, reviews, brief reports, commentaries, opinions, perspectives, and case reports. Researchers are encouraged to identify novel biomarkers linked to oxidative stress within dietary contexts. The research topic encompasses the exploration into new pathways for understanding diet-related oxidative stress, personalized nutrition through “omics”-based technologies, pharmacological agents influencing redox regulation via diet, and comprehensive studies on the impacts of specific dietary interventions.

In summary, this Special Issue aims to deepen our understanding of the intricate relationship between diet and oxidative stress. By unraveling molecular mechanisms and identifying potential biomarkers, the goal is to pave the way for personalized dietary interventions and contribute to novel therapeutic approaches for addressing oxidative stress-related health concerns.

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.
