Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lipid metabolism and homeostasis are critical for the proper functioning of multiple organ systems, particularly for the cardiovascular and nervous systems. Disorders of lipid metabolism may begin early in life or manifest in older people, and the consequences can be devastating. Dysregulated lipid production, processing, and storage can result from specific genetic mutations or complex multifactorial processes and may also be environmentally influenced. This Special Issue accepts submissions on a wide range of topics related to lipid abnormalities spanning organ systems, life stage, and etiology. Articles focused on dyslipidemia, obesity, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and the effects of chronic inflammation on the heart and brain are welcome, as are those covering dysfunction of hepatic lipid metabolism. Papers that focus on mechanistic aspects, molecular pathways, and innovative therapies are of particular interest. Both review articles and original research will be considered.

Dr. Joshua De Leon
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2700 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.
