Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The Special Issue of the Molecular Structure section of Molecules commemorating the 25th anniversary of the journal will feature papers on element 25: manganese (Mn). Whereas manuscripts are sought that deal with the structural chemistry of Mn, we also invite contributions dealing with other aspects of Mn and/or other metals. Papers may include full-length research articles, short communications, or focused reviews. Subject matter may include, but not be limited by, the topics shown below in the keywords list.
Prof. Dr. Rudy J. Richardson
Dr. David C. Lacy
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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
