Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Chloroplast 2.0
Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Chloroplast 3.0
This Special Issue, focusing on plastids, will continue with the successful quantity and quality of papers in the previous chloroplast issues extending them to chloroplast-like organelles sharing similar DNA. It aims to include investigations from chloroplasts to leucoplasts, chromoplasts, and plastid-related organelles of protozoa. Manuscripts submitted to the “Plastids” Special Issue must report high-quality and novel investigations dealing with the molecular biology of all plastid types. Energy conversion in chloroplasts; biogenesis and interconversions of non-photosynthetic plastids; metabolism; reactive oxygen species; membrane biogenesis; and transport, structure, and evolutionary relations will be warmly welcomed. Molecular insights on genetic machinery, regulatory mechanisms, evolution, development, or senescence are mandatory over descriptive reports. With this invitation, I hope that your contributions make the “Plastids” Special Issue a new reference milestone.
Prof. Dr. Bartolome Sabater
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.
