Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tissue engineering via the use of composite biomaterials has become a subject of intensive research and has grown in significance in the field of regenerative medicine in recent years. The organs that are impacted determine which materials and synthesis techniques are used. For instance, polymers, glasses, ceramics, metals, carbon-based compounds, hydrogels and other materials are attractive materials for soft tissue and bone tissue engineering. Composites and hybrids are significant biomaterial types because they have a greater capacity for regeneration than their constituent parts. Currently, no specific guidelines have been established for addressing several tissue complications (large defects, lack of substance, comorbidities such as diabetes and osteoporosis, the necessity of auto or allographs, extensive burns, antioresistance), leading to limited treatment options; novel strategies are thus demanded to restore function and strength. To overcome these barriers, researchers have been developing diverse bioengineering methods in order to realize new and improved therapies for cutaneous and musculoskeletal disorders.

This domain is considered interdisciplinary, and novelty and successful applicability are essential to a new modern medical direction. This Special Issue welcomes papers that address the areas related to biomaterial composites.

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. Applied Sciences 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.
