Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Hydrogels have received considerable attention over the past few decades and are distinguished from other materials by their unique and outstanding properties. The three-dimensional (3D) printing of hydrogel materials has rapidly developed into complex structures, with great strides in tissue engineering (corneal transplantation, bone treatment, and joint injuries), soft actuators/robotics, flexible electronics, and more. This Special Issue addresses the current challenges and future perspectives of 3D hydrogel printing and aims to discuss the applications of 3D-printed hydrogel structures in biomedicine, tissue engineering, medical devices, soft actuators, and flexible electronics. Research on the progress of 3D printing hydrogel technology is also welcome.

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.
