    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.

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
