Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The application of metal in biomedicine is becoming more and more common, but, due to its various limitations, it is often necessary to modify its surface to obtain better performance and better clinical application. There are many technologies for surface modification of medical metals, such as laser surface modification, chemical treatment, plasma surface modification, etc., and these technologies are still being developed to meet market demand. This Special Issue will collect important contributions related to the announced topics, focusing on biomedical metals and surface modification technologies of biomedical metals.
In particular, topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Design of biomedical alloy
- Preparation method of biomedical alloy
- Biomedical alloy modification technology and method
- Surface biological activity modification of biomedical alloys
- Modification of corrosion resistance of biomedical alloys
- Modification of wear resistance of biomedical alloys
- Preparation of biomedical alloy surface coating
- Evaluation of nanoscale microstructure and performance of biomedical alloys

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. Coatings 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). 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.
