Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Binder jet additive manufacturing (BJAM) is one of the fastest-growing additive manufacturing techniques and has gained a lot of research and commercial interest in the last few years. Some of the advantages of this technique include the ability to use a wide range of materials, little to no thermal stresses in the process, and printing of functional and composite materials. The potential use of BJAM for medical applications such as bone grafts, implants, and tissue development is being investigated. BJAM is also being used for high energy applications, multimaterial composites, and complex geometry manufacturing. Some of the industries currently investigating BJAM include automotive, aerospace, construction, and medical devices.

The goal of this Special Issue is to publish original research articles, critical reviews and perspectives, as well as communications and letters from leaders, in both academia and industry, on all aspects related to recent advances in BJAM. We encourage papers on various binder jet techniques, materials, applications, and novel ideas for future development. Papers in the field of polymers, metal–polymer composites, and polymer–ceramic composites using BJAM processes are especially welcome.

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 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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
