Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce the call for papers for the fourth Special Issue of Biomimetics in the Series “Biomimetic Nanotechnology”. Following our previous volumes, we are once again seeking to showcase important research in the field of biomimetic nanotechnology. This issue aims to capture the latest advancements, innovative methodologies and visionary outlooks in this rapidly evolving domain.

Scope of the Special Issue “Biomimetic Nanotechnology Vol. 4: Advances in Biomimetic Nanotechnology”:

Biomimetic nanotechnology, a field at the intersection of biology and nanotechnology, has shown remarkable growth and potential in recent years. It involves the study and transfer of nature's methods to the human domain, and deals with structures and processes to solve complex human problems. The Special Issue “Biomimetic Nanotechnology Vol. 4: Advances in Biomimetic Nanotechnology” seeks original research articles that demonstrate novel approaches, methodologies, and applications in biomimetic nanotechnology as well as review and outlook articles. We are particularly interested in works that push the boundaries of current knowledge and open new avenues for scientific inquiry and technological development.

State of the Art in Biomimetic Nanotechnology:

The field has witnessed significant advancements in recent years. Key areas of progress include the following:

  • Nanomaterials inspired by nature: development of materials with unique properties such as self-healing, adaptability, and enhanced durability, mimicking natural phenomena.
  • Functional nanostructures inspired by nature: structural colors, hydrophobicity, temperature management, and hierarchical structures.
  • Drug delivery systems: innovations in targeted drug delivery and controlled release systems inspired by biological mechanisms.
  • Sensors and diagnostics: bio-inspired sensors with enhanced sensitivity and specificity for environmental monitoring and medical diagnostics.
  • Biomimetic nanotechnology made with environmentally friendly materials.
  • Energy harvesting and storage: design of energy systems mimicking natural processes for efficient energy capture, storage, and utilization.

Submission Categories:

Original Research Articles: We welcome submissions detailing original research that contributes significantly to the field. These should be comprehensive studies reporting novel findings, supported by empirical evidence and robust methodologies.

Review Articles: Comprehensive reviews that summarize and analyze the current state of the art in biomimetic nanotechnology are encouraged. These should provide critical insights, identify gaps in current knowledge, and suggest directions for future research.

Outlook Papers: We are particularly interested in forward-looking papers that provide visionary perspectives on the future of biomimetic nanotechnology. These articles should offer predictions, emerging trends, and potential new applications that could shape the field in the coming years.

Submission Guidelines:

Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the journal's guidelines and submitted through the online submission system.

All submissions will undergo a rigorous peer-review process to ensure high standards of quality and relevance.

Please indicate in your cover letter that your submission is intended for the Special Issue “Biomimetic Nanotechnology Vol. 4”.

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. Biomimetics 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 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
