About the book

This book intends to provide the up-to-date information on the naturally occurring phenolic compounds. The book will cover practical and applied evidence based data extracted from thousands in vitro, in vivo, preclinical, and clinical scientific research to provide the interested scientists as well as the community with a highly reliable source for many challenging health issues including COVID-19, degenerative diseases, and chronic complex health problems. Interestingly, this book may open a new horizon for developing new therapeutic agents from natural phenolic compounds with multi-target purposes.

This book will present clear and applied unambiguous data to be implemented in academia, the drug industry, nutraceuticals and the food industry. New highly reliable methodologies will be presented with full data to help reproduce the outcomes in all applied fields with a high degree of accuracy and reproducibility.

This book aims to be a great asset to many interested scientists including young and senior researchers, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, and drug industry as well as clinicians.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
