Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food is any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink to maintain life and growth. It is known that nutrition has a predominant and recognizable role in health management. However, nutritional imbalance, inadequate nutrition, or default of feeding behavior can lead to metabolic disorders, leading to an alteration of the growth and even death.

In this way, finding and maintaining a nutritionally rich diet requires learning about which nutrients are healthy and which nutrients are not, how foods and nutrients impact the body, and how to use scientific resources.

Contributions to this Special Issue will provide new insights into the impact of nutrition in all animal models deciphering nutrient-mediated signaling pathways in different cell types to organs, from the detection of nutrients through their absorption and elimination to their beneficial or detrimental role in organisms.

Works that focus on studies of whole diets, nutrients (fatty acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins, etc.), or in the intake of food supplements with the aim to contribute to our knowledge about the impact of nutrition in healthy organisms, as well as nutritional or metabolic disorders or diseases are welcomed.

Prof. Dr. Nobuyuki Takahashi
Guest Editor

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.
