Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stimuli-responsive materials have emerged as an exciting area of materials science and engineering. It is an inherently interdisciplinary research area that uses chemistry and chemical engineering to design, synthesize, and characterise materials of various classes (e.g. ceramics, glasses, metals, polymers, etc.). These stimuli-responsive materials have exhibited increasingly important applications in various fileds, including drug delivery, tissue engineering, diagnostics, biosensors, microelectromechanical systems, coatings, etc. In this Special Issue of Materials devoted to "Responsive Materials for Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering", we warmly invite submissions related to the design principles underpinning such materials, their computational and theoretical modelling, their synthesis and engineering, and their applications.

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.
