Magnesium (Mg) and other biometals (BM) play an essential role in various physiological processes in cells but also at the level of tissue, organ, and of the whole body. Aberrant homeostasis of Mg or other BM can be the consequence of some disease conditions, but it might also be a factor priming the onset of certain diseases. Among serious disease conditions associated with disturbed Mg and other BM homeostasis are cardiovascular, metabolic and also neurological, neurodegenerative, neuromuscular, and psychiatric diseases. In this Special Issue of IJMS, we welcome any original research, review or minireview/hypothesis regarding the role of Mg and of other BM (or their homeostatic factors) in the pathoetiology of human and animal ailments and their use in diagnostics and patient therapy following principles of translational and/or personalized medicine.

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 papers will be 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.
