Multiple lines of evidence have suggested the essential biological and medical functions of noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs), including but not limited to microRNAs (miRNAs), long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), and circular RNAs (circRNA). To provide the readers with a comprehensive overview of the field, Med One journal is inviting the most prominent scientists to contribute to the virtual special issue entitled "Non-coding RNAs in Medicine". This virtual special issue welcomes primary research, review and meta-analysis articles focused on biogenesis, characterization, regulatory, and physiological functions of ncRNAs as well as their applications in research, diagnosis, and therapy of human diseases.
All manuscripts for the virtual special issue must go through the journal's peer review process.

Submission Deadline: 31 July 2019
Manuscripts should be submitted online through Hapres Online Submission System. Please visit Guide for Authors before submitting a manuscript. Authors are encouraged to submit a paper as soon as it is ready and don’t need to wait until the deadline. Submissions will be sent to peer-review in order of arrival. Accepted papers will be published continuously in Med One and then gathered together on the special issue webpage. We welcome Research articles, Review papers, Meta-Analysis articles, and Perspectives. There are no word limits for each article type. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for approval.
Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.
All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.
Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
