Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

All multicellular organisms rely on intercellular communication networks to coordinate physiological functions. Intercellular communication allows for molecular information to be transferred from cell to cell, in order to maintain tissue or organ homeostasis. The terms extracellular vesicles, microvesicles, oncosomes, or exosomes are often used interchangeably as descriptors of particles that are released from cells and comprise a lipid membrane that encapsulates nucleic acids and proteins, which are increasingly recognized as important modulators of intercellular communication and can directly or indirectly affect the cell microenvironment. Alteration in the process due to changes, either on the vehicle or the cargo information, may contribute to pathological events. Therefore, revealing the molecular processes behind extracellular vesicle production and secretion is essential for disease prevention and therapeutic development.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted via our online editorial system at https://imr.propub.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to start your submission. Manuscripts can be submitted now or up until the deadline. All papers will go through peer-review process. Accepted papers will be published in the journal (as soon as accepted) and meanwhile listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, reviews as well as short communications are preferred. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office to announce on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts will be thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. Please visit the Instruction for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) in this open access journal is 2500 USD. Submitted manuscripts should be well formatted in good English.
