Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue is devoted to the papers of communications presented at the Nordic Polymer Days 2019 meeting, Trondheim, 5–7 June, 2019 (https://www.ntnu.edu/npd2019). The main topics are as follows:
- Scattering for characterization of polymers and polymer materials
- Polymer microscopy
- Polymers for biomedical applications
- Polymer theory and modelling
- Polymer composites
- Environmental aspects of polymers
- Functional polymers
This Special Issue aims at presenting the research work from the Nordic Polymer Days 2019, a prime Nordic conference gathering researchers and professionals to confer around the new advances in polymer science, and facilitate networking opportunities at the intersection of polymer science and technological development.
It is my pleasure to invite all participants of the Nordic Polymer Days 2019 meeting to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Papers from invited lectures, keynote lectures, oral communications, and posters are all 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 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. Polymers 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.
