Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
This section serves as a platform for publication of original and significant knowledge on the biochemistry, metabolism and physiology of lipids. We welcome submissions involving molecular, cellular and whole animal research. The scope includes physiological actions of lipids; metabolic, signaling, bioactive, structural. Biological studies of lipids in cell membranes and the role they play in membrane dynamics and signaling are welcome. Human research, genetics, functional genetics and epidemiological studies are welcome.
We are interested in hypothesis driven research related to how lipids impact health and homeostasis levels and how lipid abnormalities promote etiology of disease e.g. diabetes, obesity, immunity, vascular disease, cognitive defects, aging, are areas of interest.
Submissions can be in the form of Original Research articles or as Brief Research Reports for rapid communication of novel impactful findings. Clinical or translational studies can be submitted under Clinical Trial, Clinical Study Protocol or Case Report article types. Reviews, Mini Reviews and Opinions on research progress, emerging research areas, debated topics, or as highlights of recent high impact reports are welcome.
Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, ESCI
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Lipid and Fatty Acid Research welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Lipid and Fatty Acid Research, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Lipid and Fatty Acid Research will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Physiology and Nutrition.
