Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metal-based biomaterials are the most widely used among other groups of biomaterials. These include titanium and its alloys, cobalt alloys, and austenitic steels. Less frequently, but with great potential, tantalum, gold, palladium, and their alloys are used. Great interest in this group of materials results from their very good mechanical, physicochemical, and biological properties. There is also a great potential to modify the chemical composition, structure, and properties, as well as the potential to modify the surface of products made of them. Susceptibility to the many processes of surface treatment, such as, for example, anodic oxidation, PVD, CVD, thermal spraying, and so on, makes them as materials with unlimited biomedical possibilities. Particular attention should be paid to their use in orthopaedic, cardiology, and stomatology. There are new methods of production and modification, including, in particular, additive techniques, emphasizing the production of excellent materials at low costs. This topic is dedicated to new and old type metallic biomaterials made by new and conventional techniques but with new and extraordinary properties.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue that is related to the above topic. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcomed.

Prof. Dr. Jarosław Jakubowicz
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. 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 2300 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.
