    Aims and Scope


    Glycoconjugate Journal publishes articles and reviews on all areas concerned with:

    function, composition, structure, biosynthesis, degradation, interactions, recognition and chemo-enzymatic synthesis of glycoconjugates (glycoproteins, glycolipids, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides and proteoglycans), biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, immunology and cell biology of glycoconjugates, aspects related to disease processes (immunological, inflammatory, arthritic infections, metabolic disorders, malignancy, neurological disorders), structural and functional glycomics, glycoimmunology, glycovaccines, organic synthesis of glycoconjugates and the development of methodologies if biologically relevant, glycosylation changes in disease if focused on either the discovery of a novel disease marker or the improved understanding of some basic pathological mechanism, articles on the effects of toxicological agents (alcohol, tobacco, narcotics, environmental agents) on glycosylation, and the use of glycotherapeutics.

    Glycoconjugate Journal is the official journal of the International Glycoconjugate Organization, which is responsible for organizing the biennial International Symposia on Glycoconjugates.
