Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last few decades, biomaterials have been widely investigated for several biomedical applications such as implants, surgical sutures, scaffolds for regenerative medicine, biosensors, drug delivery systems, and antibacterial substrates. These materials’ surface functionalization, by incorporating biomolecules, biopolymers, drugs, or bioactive signals, has been shown to achieve improvements in fields ranging from medical devices, to drug delivery, to regenerative medicine. Modern biomaterials evolution is focused on challenges related to the design of biocompatible smart materials with desired physical, chemical, mechanical, biological, and degradation properties to match the requirements for specific medical applications. The design of smart materials for biomedical fields requires comprehensive knowledge of their biological, chemical, physical, and mechanical properties, and a multidisciplinary approach. The aim of this Special Issue is to stimulate worldwide researchers to present original research articles, communications, and reviews that prominently demonstrate the future perspectives in developing advanced materials for application in the biomedical field.

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.
