The human genome is composed of approximately 3 billion nucleotides, but only about 2% of them are known to encode proteins. The other 98–99% of nucleotides are a black box known as non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). These ncRNAs are diverse and may include microRNA (miRNA), small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs), long ncRNAs, promoter-associated transcripts (PATs), enhancer RNAs (eRNAs), and circular RNAs (circRNAs). In this Special Edition, we will attempt to make sense of the many functions and potential functions of ncRNAs.

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. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
