Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advancements in experimental methods and tools have fueled the discovery of non-coding RNAs (e.g., microRNAs, small RNAs, long non-coding RNAs) and epitranscriptomic marks that control the wide variety of RNA metabolisms, including splicing, stability, subcellular localization, and translation. When such generated data are of a transcriptional-wide manner, the power of computers is needed to identify non-coding RNAs and epitranscriptomic marks. Furthermore, this extracted information from the experimental data must be annotated to connect these data to the known information and to further discover novel non-coding RNAs and epitranscriptomic marks. Once these data are converted to the information, further processing of the analyzed data is necessary to disseminate the acquired knowledge to wider audiences so that further scientific discoveries can be made. In this Special Issue, we invite the submission of manuscripts on experimental methods and tools for non-coding RNAs and epitranscriptomic marks as well as computational methods to analyze, annotate, categorize, and/or disseminate to further elucidate the importance of non-coding RNAs and epitranscriptomic marks in cellular activities, tissue developments, and/or pathophysilogies of various organs and organisms.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Non-Coding RNA 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 1600 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.
