I deem that QSAR/QSPR Theory is the Theoretical and Computational Chemistry area which is actually developing at the most quick pace within the Chemistry realm.
This quite interesting development is taking place at the formal and computational levels in such a way that now chemists can resort to this speciality to analyse their experimental results to have a valid and encompassing meaning of the numerical data.
A large number of standard publications register these contributions, but it is also necessary to be able to resort to general overviews documents in order to compare different approaches and meaningful results derived from the application and development of this theory.
This special IJMS issue on some recent advances in QSAR/QSPR theory aims to fulfil this purpose through the presentation of several contributions of some well-known leaders on this field.
