Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
During the past decade, inertial microfluidics has been attracting much attention from researchers in diverse fields, including fluid mechanics, bioengineering, and biomedical sciences. The ability of inertial microfluidics to handle fluids and particles with extremely high-throughput has enabled many practical applications such as cell separation/enrichment, flow shaping, single-cell manipulation/analysis, and unconventional microparticle fabrications. Recently, there have been notable increases in publications for the application of inertial microfluidic techniques in bioanalytical research and medical sample collection and diagnostics. Yet, interesting topics for understanding the underlying physics of inertial microfluidics and the development of novel fluid and particle manipulation techniques are still actively studied to achieve higher throughput and efficiency. This Special Issue seeks original research papers, short communications, and review articles, illustrating the capabilities of inertial microfluidic technology not only for fundamental research but also for diverse applications.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.Dr. Soojung Claire Hur

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. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
