Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biomaterials, engineered substances that interact with biological systems with applications in medicine, have been in the spotlight recently, since there has been enormous progress in the field of materials itself. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on recent progress and novel trends in (bio)material science. Special attention will be devoted to biomaterials with advanced functions and unique properties applicable in medicine and biology but also as tools for research.

This Special Issue “Advanced Functional Materials for Biomedicinal Applications” will underline the most recent discoveries and progress in all fields of science related to advanced materials with possible applications in medicine and biology. This Special Issue will focus particularly on, but not be limited to, cell culture, tissue engineering, drug delivery, antimicrobial activity, material characterization, bioimaging, and bioactivity. Reviews, regular research articles, and short communications on this topic are invited from research groups from all over the world to encourage the dissemination of scientific knowledge through this open-access journal. Researchers working in the field of biomaterials and related disciplines are encouraged to publish their recent findings in this Special Issue of Materials.

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. Materials 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.
