    Special Issue on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a clinical syndrome characterized by weakness, fatigue, poor sleep quality, cognitive decline and some somatic symptoms. It has a high incidence and great harm. The cause of CFS is unknown. At present, it is believed that CFS may be caused by multiple factors such as viral infection, immune abnormality, neuroendocrine abnormality and psychological stress. There is currently no specific cure for CFS.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring chronic fatigue syndrome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Cognitive behaviour therapy for CFS
    • Exercise therapy for CFS
    • Diagnosis of CFS
    • Immunological abnormalities in CFS
    • CFS and fibromyalgia
    • Prevalence of CFS
    • Epidemiology of CFS

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” should be chosen during your submission.
