Nanomaterials will potentially play an important role in medicine. Production and applications of nanomaterials in industry are increasing. Furthermore, there are more than 1300 marketed nanomaterial-based consumer products. Therefore, how nanomaterials diagnose and treat diseases and how they perturb normal biological systems all become a top concern. In recent years, researchers are actively engaged in such investigations and discussions. At the same time, technologies and methods are developed to make more targeting and biocompatible nanoparticles for medicinal and imaging application. Since we started the special issue “Bioactive Nanoparticles”, responses and submissions from researchers have been enormous. As a result, two special issues “Bioactive Nanoparticles” and “Bioactive Nanoparticles 2012” have been published. This new special issue “Bioactive Nanoparticles 2013” will include research papers and review articles reflecting the most recent progresses and challenges in this dynamic research area.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
