Special Issue Information

The recent involvement of nanotechnology in the pharmaceutical field has led to the development of several nanocarriers as drug delivery systems. The great number of advantages of lipid-based nanoparticles has prompted researchers to investigate the feasibility of using these nanocarriers to solve drug bioavailability and targeting issues.

This special issue aims to cover a wide range of aspects related to the potential use of lipid-based nanoparticles for various therapeutic purposes and different administration routes.

Authors are invited to contribute original research articles and comprehensive review articles focused on the most recent advances in the design, characterization and pharmaceutical applications of lipid-based nanocarriers and the relevant future perspectives in their potential clinical use.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to lipid –based nanoparticles brain delivery, topical (dermal and ocular) delivery, transdermal delivery, parenteral administration, oral administration, in vitro and in vivo evaluation methods, design and characterization.

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. Nanomaterials 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 1500 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.
