Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Omega‐3 polyunsaturated fatty acids as essential nutrients, dietary supplements, and pharmaceutical drugs have been widely investigated and used over the past few decades. The continued interest and ever‐growing volume of research in the field point to omega‐3 fatty acids as a key player in the management of chronic diseases. However, the main challenge of omega‐3 research lies in its complexity and confounding factors. Variations, inconsistencies, and controversies on the study outcomes of omega‐3 fatty acids remain to be clarified. Recent advances in analytical technologies (such as “omics”), new animal models, and integrated experimental approaches have allowed us to more comprehensively and accurately elucidate the biological effects of omega‐3 fatty acids and their mechanisms and readily identify biomarkers for efficacy evaluation. Novel concepts and emerging technologies are being used for production, process, and analysis of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as for the development of omega‐3‐based interventions for health promotion and disease management.

The field of omega-3 research has evolved rapidly in recent years, and its potential applications have become more diverse and significant for public health. The aim of this topic collection is to provide a platform for sharing research progress and highlight the frontier of the field of omega-3 fatty acids.

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 collection 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.
