Special Issue on “Hyaluronan Biology”

January 6th, 2024

I am pleased to announce the establishment of a Special Issue on “Hyaluronan Biology” which will be run by two specialist Guest Editors: Aaron C. Petrey, Ph.D. from the University of Utah and Stephen R. Reeves, MD from the University of Washington. Our goal is to publish 10-15 articles including a blend of Research Articles, Brief Reports and Minireviews. Articles can be submitted continuously and will be published on an ongoing basis with submission deadline of June 30th, 2024, when they will become part of an available virtual issue completed after the deadline.

The website contains helpful instructions for submission and for the quality of published papers:

We believe that this special issue will create a great opportunity to increase the visibility of our research field. If you are interested in submitting a research article or a minireview, please contact directly Aaron or Stephen at or, respectively.

Proteoglycan Research is a fully open access journal that considers both mechanistic and correlative papers including research articles, research reports, comprehensive reviews, mini-reviews, perspectives, methods papers and technical advances. Please view the Guide to Authors for more information.

All the best,

Renato V. Iozzo, MD PhD
Editor-In-Chief, Proteoglycan Research
