SLAS Discovery

Guest Editors Parastoo Azadi, Ph.D. and Christian Heiss, Ph.D., of the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center at the University of Georgia (USA) invite manuscript proposals (abstracts) on topics related to Carbohydrate Structure Analysis: Methods and Applications for publication in a 2020 special issue. Proposals will be used to select and invite manuscript submissions for review and publication consideration.

Drs. Azadi and Heiss seek high-quality, short or full-length research reports, reviews and perspectives related to new developments in carbohydrate structure analysis as well as applications of carbohydrate characterization. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Mass spectrometry of oligosaccharides or glycoconjugates
  • NMR techniques for carbohydrate structure analysis
  • Higher order structures
  • New approaches to separation of mono-, oligo-, or polysaccharides
  • Developments in determination of cell wall structure
  • Glycomics and glycoproteomics of medically important glycoproteins
  • Therapeutic antibodies
  • Plant and microbial polysaccharides
  • Glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans
  • Peptidoglycans
  • Virus glycosylation
  • Biofilms
  • Training modules for the next generation of glyco-scientists

Submit your manuscript proposal before May 31, 2019.

  1. Submit a working title and abstract (up to 500 words) as an MSWord document/attachment to
  2. Include “SLAS Technology Special Issue / CARB” in the subject line of your e-mail.
  3. Include your name, affiliation and contact info in the text of the e-mail and in your MSWord document.

Invited authors will be notified by May 31, 2019. Invited manuscripts will need to be completed and submitted by Aug. 10, 2019. All submitted papers will be subject to peer-review to ensure scientific rigor, clarity of expression and integration with other contributions in the SLAS Technology special issue. Submissions from SLAS members, nonmembers and especially IEEE NANOMED 2018 speakers are welcome. No APCs.

Publication note: After submissions are accepted, they typically publish online ahead-of-print within 30 days and become immediately searchable and citeable with a DOI.
