The Journal of Proteome Research will publish its eighth annual Special Issue dedicated to highlight the progress made on the HUPO Human Proteome Project (HPP). The Special Issue considers research papers encompassing both the Chromosome-Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) and the Biology and Disease Human Proteome Project (B/D-HPP), as well from the Resource Pillars (Antibody, MS, Pathology, and Knowledgebase), and short definitive reports, submitted in the Letters format, on the discovery of a Missing Protein(s). To be considered, the missing protein(s) must meet the Guidelines v 3.0 and be cast in the context of the HPP and biological setting in which they were discovered.
Manuscripts must be submitted by 31st May, 2020 to be considered for this Special Issue. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically through the ACS Paragon Plus Environment online submission system. Specify in the authors’ cover letter that the manuscript is intended for the HPP Special Issue. Editorial triage will determine whether manuscripts are appropriate for the HPP Special Issue, fulfil the HPP Guidelines 3.0 (2019-10-15) checklist and protein evidence based on the 2020-01-17 neXtprot release to be considered for publication. The completed checklist must be included with the cover letter. The full MS data submission to ProteomeXchange must also be completed prior to initial submission, and the PXD number provided in the abstract. As papers are accepted they will go online and be available in time for HUPO-2020. Due to the publication schedule, only papers that are accepted by September 31, 2020 will be published in the December 2020 HPP Special Issue.
