Metabolomics has been playing an increasingly important role in the study of biological systems and diseases. The large-scale analysis of metabolites creates challenges in methods, informatics, and data-to-knowledge creation.
The Journal of Proteome Research (JPR) is preparing to publish a special issue highlighting these applications and novel methods for metabolomics in 2022.
For readers, this special issue will be an easily identifiable source of high-quality papers. For authors, it provides increased visibility for the latest applications and methods driving the metabolomics field.
If you are doing work in this field, the JPR editorial team invites you to submit a manuscript by October 31, 2021.
The Metabolomics Special Issue will be managed by Associate Editor Jeremy K. Nicholson (Australian National Phenome Center, Murdoch University) and Guest Editors Professors Coral Barbas (Centre for Metabolomics and Bioanalysis, Universidad CEU San Pablo), Jia Wei (Hong Kong Traditional Chinese Medicine Phenome Research Centre), and Jessica Lasky-Su (Harvard University).
Topics for the special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Analytical advances – greater emphasis on conceptual over technical advances
- Microbiome-host metabolism and disease
- Nutritional phenomics
- Population level phenotyping and disease risks
- Personalized Medicine and patient stratification
- Clinical and translational aspects of lipidomics
- Informatics and data fusion for metabolic phenotyping- emphasis on new approaches
- TCM aspects of metabolic phenotyping
- COVID-19 related work and other infectious disease phenomics- emergent zoonotic threats etc.
- Chiral metabolism- dietary and microbiome aspects
Applications included in the manuscript should contain appropriate validation.
Data generated should be supported by an appropriate number of replicates and statistical analyses. In addition, there should be sufficient detail about the methods to allow easy replication.
Data associated with demonstrating the method must be submitted to an appropriate repository at the time of submission, along with full access information to the data provided in the manuscript (dataset identifier(s), username, and password).
In ACS Paragon Plus, specify a manuscript type, and activate the special issue feature to designate the paper for Metabolomics. In addition, include a statement in your cover letter that the paper is being submitted for the special issue. Provide names and contact information for at least four suggested reviewers who can meaningfully comment on the described method.
Manuscripts will be screened for suitability upon submission, and the final submission deadline for inclusion in the special issue is October 31, 2021.
