Special Issue Information
Saliva is an important biological fluid and a valuable source of biological information. Saliva contains many of the same components that can be found in blood or serum, but the components of interest tend to be at a lower concentration in saliva, and their analysis demands more sensitive techniques. Metabolomics is starting to emerge as a viable method for assessing the salivary metabolites which are generated by the process of metabolism in elucidating the pathways underlying diﬀerent oral and systemic diseases. Although saliva collection is non-invasive and the handling and preparation of saliva samples for metabolomic analysis is relatively simple, very few salivary studies have been published using metabolomics technologies as compared to other biofluids. Therefore, this Special Issue, “Salivary Metabolomics for Oral and Systemic Diseases”, will be dedicated to the use of metabolomics in salivary research. Specific areas of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, analytical protocols for salivary sample preparation and analysis, as well as the identification of salivary biomarkers for oral or systemic diseases and treatment monitoring.

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. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
