Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As Guest Editors, we are pleased to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on “Advanced Materials Science and Technology in Drug Delivery”. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: advanced synthesis methods and technologies for ceramic and/or composite materials; innovative materials used for drug loading and drug delivery; methods of drug loading, gene delivery; delivery of pharmaceutical compounds (both natural and synthetic); porous materials (carriers) for a controlled/modulated release of bioactive compounds or nanoparticles (zeolites, mesoporous silica, hydroxyapatite, clays, metal-organic framework (MoF)-based materials, organic framework with a porous structure such as COFs, etc.); biological evaluation in terms of antimicrobial, antitumoral or anti-inflammatory effect; biocompatibility; cell-proliferation.

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. Pharmaceutics 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 2900 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.
