Research on neutrophil biology has been expanding recently. NETs formation, NETosis, and their role in diseases or their models is one such research area. Another area involves research on the fate of neutrophils during resolution, cell death, phagocytosis of dead neutrophils, and/or reverse migration. Upon inflammation, neutrophils are recruited to the site from the reservoirs by means of not only chemokines but also other mediators. Subsets of neutrophils have also been identified in various settings. Various hereditary diseases in mice and humans have also been described, unveiling the hitherto unrecognized regulatory mechanisms of neutrophil development. There may be unknown, perhaps not fully characterized, phenomena in neutrophil biology. Taken together, I would like to urge researchers who have engaged in such research areas actively to provide along with their results, their thoughts and the current status of their research area, so that readers can enjoy reading innovative papers and that help predict the future directions of neutrophil biology.

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.
