Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advances in the field of materials science, especially those related to the proteins and peptides, have resulted in the generation of new biomedical applications and witnessed tremendous progress in the last decade. It is also established that the primary interactions of biological entities (e.g., blood tissue) with nanoparticles (NPs) are a strong influence of the proteins present in the corona. This combination of materials and proteins was intended to deliver nanostructures to the body and beneficially improve the efficacy of the materials. Furthermore, while the optimal effects in the quality of the results have not seen by the nanomaterials itself, it may be profitable to assist the materials by employing the proteins or peptides. Proteins nanotechnology as a fast-emerging, inter-disciplinary field offers prospects to design and develop nanomaterials to target, diagnose, and treat diseases such as cancers.

In this Special Issue of NanomaterialsOpen-Access Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials), we intend to invite the researcher and authors to submit original research and review articles on this Special Issue, which addresses the recent advancements in nanomaterials science and their applications in nanotechnology.

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 2200 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.
