Special Issue "Implantable Medical Devices"
A special issue of Bioengineering (ISSN 2306-5354).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 February 2019)
Research that will lead to the eventual development of implantable medical devices must be of the highest scientific standards in order to help ensure patient safety. However, those of us who specialize in this research also understand that other considerations must often be made when designing these projects. Future regulatory and reimbursement considerations must be made when setting up research on implantable medical devices. In this way, the probability that the research will be applied to and useful for a commercially viable device is enhanced.
In order to highlight this type of research, the MDPI journal, Bioengineering, is offering this Special Issue dedicated to research on implantable medical devices. The goal of this issue is to highlight cutting-edge research that has a high probability of leading to either improvements in or development of medical implants. The research presented can range from basic science studies to biomechanics and biomaterials work to testing in large animals. This issue will include a broad range of novel research related to medical devices across all sectors.
Topics include, but are not limited to, research on development and evaluation of implants in the areas of:
- Orthopaedic and spine
- Drug delivery
Prof. Dr. Elizabeth A Friis
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. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 550 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.
