We are pleased to contact you regarding this forthcoming Special Issue in Nanomaterials, entitled “Polymeric Micelles and Their Application in Nanomedicine".
Polymeric micelles, i.e., self-assembled core-shell nanostructures of block copolymers, present outstanding features for delivering a wide range of bioactive molecules and spatiotemporally controlling their functions. The aim of this issue is to highlight advances in the development of polymeric micelles by featuring the newest trends in innovative strategies for nanomedicine applications. In this context, we would like to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Typically, the format of welcomed articles includes full papers, communications, and reviews. All papers will undergo regular refereeing procedures, managed by the in-house editors.
We would be delighted if you could contribute to this Special Issue.

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 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.
