Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Over the past decade, advances related to pulsed electric field (PEF) techniques have matured considerably, contributing to a broad range of applications in the medical, environmental, food, energy, and biotechnological fields.
This Special Issue will provide an excellent opportunity for sharing the latest results related to the development of technologies associated with the generation of PEFs, from pulsed power generators to treatment chambers, as well as their applications in various domains. In addition, there will also be works presented that describe PEF techniques applied for cancer treatment and tumor ablation, disinfection, decontamination, hygiene, cell and tissue stimulation, wound healing, biomass processing and biofuel generation, food safety and food preservation, agricultural crops, and farming as well as biomedical applications, together with their characteristic diagnostics and analytics.
This Special Issue of Applied Sciences, “Applications of Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) Interactions with Biological Cells”, aims to attract novel contributions covering a wide range of research and applications of the experimental techniques and effects of PEFs on biological cells.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
