Special Issue "Bioactive Nanoparticles 2014"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2014)
Nanomaterials will potentially play an important role in medicine. Production and applications of nanomaterials in industry are still increasing. Furthermore, there are more than 1,300 marketed nanomaterial-based consumer products. Therefore, how nanomaterials diagnose and treat diseases and how they perturb normal biological systems will become top concerns. In recent years, researchers are actively engaged in such investigations. At the same time, technologies and methods are being developed to make targeted and biocompatible nanoparticles for medicinal and imaging applications. Since we started the Special Issue “Bioactive Nanoparticles”, responses and submissions from researchers have been enormous. As a result, three further Special Issues “Bioactive Nanoparticles” (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special _issues/bioactive_nanoparticles), Bioactive Nanoparticles 2012 (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues/nanoparticles_2012), and Bioactive Nanoparticles 2013 (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues/bioactive_nanoparticles_2013) have been published. This new Special Issue “Bioactive Nanoparticles 2014” will include research papers and review articles reflecting the most recent progress and solutions to challenges in this dynamic research area.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
