Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For decades, effective treatments of infectious diseases such as viral, bacterial, and fungal infections have remained a strong challenge in medicine. As we know, healthcare providers and researchers are currently facing many hurdles to finding effective therapies for these diseases, including drug resistance, which is considered a major challenge. In recent years, molecular medicine evolution has accelerated the progress of finding successful approaches to manage infectious diseases. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to shed light on recent innovations that explain infectious disease pathogenesis at the molecular or physiological level, which may lead to the design of specific tools for disease diagnosis, treatment (including drug design and development), or prevention (including vaccine development). Studies that are performed at cellular and genetic levels, which describe the implications of the results for infectious diseases, are also considered for publication. Computational investigations that are performed to unveil the molecular pathways and are supported by in vitro and in vivo experiments are also welcomed.

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.
