We are launching a Special Issue on “Permanent and Long-Term Biodegradable Biomaterials” in Applied Sciences (IF = 1.679). The aim of this Special Issue is to publish experimental papers and up-to-date review articles on recent advances in the development of permanent biomaterials or durable biodegradable biomaterials. This Special Issue welcomes articles based on theory, design, fabrication, characterization, and clinical performance of permanent or long-term biodegradable biomaterials from a multidisciplinary point of view (chemistry, physics, materials science and biology).
Nowadays, some permanent biomaterials used in the market do not fulfill the actual biomaterials’ requirements. For this reason, novel, optimized, non-toxic, biocompatible compositions are needed to increase the longevity of the implants and to improve the patients' comfort. It is, therefore, the aim of this Special Issue to provide novel approaches (i.e., fabrication procedures, surface engineering methods) to obtain the aforementioned biomaterials with better performance mainly in terms of mechanical and corrosion resistance.

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. 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 2000 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.
