Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are welcoming submissions for our new Special Issue titled Molecular Advances in Heart Disease. This Special Issue aims to present publications that elucidate heart disease’s etiology and pathophysiology. We will accept articles focusing on the study and interpretation of molecular, genetic, proteomic, and metabolomic changes in tissues and cells to aid in the diagnosis, pathogenesis, prognosis, and treatment of heart diseases. In addition to basic science, we welcome translational research and clinical evidence that supports biomolecular experiments. Every year, approximately 647,000 Americans die from heart disease, which is 1 in every 4 deaths, making it the leading cause of death and an important unmet medical need. We hope that this Special Issue will collate papers that foster a comprehensive understanding of this condition and breakthroughs in the field of heart disease research.

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.
