Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Complex biomaterials systems and their applications is a field that deals with the synthesis, fabrication, integration, and application of biomaterials to practical biological, pharmaceutical, and medical areas.  Complex biomaterial-based systems are gaining more and more focus nowadays as the complexity of the needs in practical fields grow. 

It is true that simple systems based on a single structure and/or single composition have been studied extensively and have shown exceptional achievements in the last decades. It is also true that a simple and easy-to-use system is more attractive in practical fields from an applications point of view. 

However, as demand from the field requiring sophisticated techniques grows daily, the need for complex systems, including new materials systems, composite materials systems, 3D materials systems, multifunctional systems, materials systems that accompany complicated or new fabrication techniques, etc, are growing. Such systems can range from nano to macro dimensions, not excluding nano–macro composite systems.

For these reasons, it is my great pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full research articles, short communications, and reviews are welcome that are related (but not limited) to the topics that have been described above, including in vivo and in vitro studies, the characterization of properties, and the functionalization of such systems. Submissions are open from 5 February, 2020.

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.
