Focus and Scope

The goal of the Mitochondrial and Metabolic Medicine (M3) journal is to cover all aspects of mitochondrial metabolism and cellular metabolism including the normal metabolic processes and the breakdowns in primary and secondary mitochondrial and metabolic diseases and the treatment of these diseases. M3 will publish medical case report, editorial, commentary, hypothesis, short and full-length reviews, full-length clinical or basic science research articles and short articles of immediate scientific or clinical significance. The areas include but not limited to a case report, diagnostic and therapeutic approach and mechanisms at the molecular, genetic, metabolic and physiological levels underlying the metabolic diseases.

The overall aim is to publish high quality, high impact, and innovative research articles in all areas related to metabolic disorders including primary mitochondrial diseases as well as secondary mitochondrial diseases such as cancer, diabetes, neurological disorders and others.

Peer Review Process

Authors should provide name, address and current email address of five potential expert reviewers. All articles submitted to the M3 are subjected to a two-tier review using our online peer review system. The preliminary review is conducted by an editor to make sure the article conforms to the requirements of the journal and research area is appropriate for the M3. The editor also ensures that the article brings new scientific knowledge to the field. In the second stage of the review process, articles are assigned to expert reviewers from the field. Following feedback of reviewers, the editor makes the final decision on acceptance of the article.
