Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioenergetics is a central tenet governing metabolic processes and underlies many model-based predictions of microbially-mediated biogeochemical cycling. New high-resolution techniques have allowed for greater insight into the thermodynamic drivers of microbial activity and the complexity of their interactions in natural environments, as well as their variation across environmental gradients. Such an understanding is important for constraining process-based models to improve predictions of microbial and biogeochemical responses to a changing climate. We seek submissions from scientists working in diverse disciplines who strive to understand microbial activity and biogeochemistry using bioenergetic tools at various spatio-temporal scales. Both experimental (lab and field) and modelling (empirical, numerical, and conceptual) approaches are welcome. Submissions that integrate experiments and models are especially encouraged, as well as submissions presenting results in the context of environmental change.

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. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
