Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

To date, the urgent need for effective tissue substitutes which are able to replace or repair injured or diseased tissues has prompted research in tissue engineering with the ambitious purpose to improve human health. Several natural, synthetic or composite tissue mimics, either functional or growing into functionality, can be developed combining tools and methods from medicine, anatomy and biology with engineering and physical sciences. Only the identification of that complex and fine balance among morphological, ultrastructural, mechanical and biological characteristics can guarantee effective devices able to provide for satisfactory outcomes in vivo in an era of increasingly personalized medical care.

This Special Issue aims to encourage researchers from different fields of research to share their recent advances in the development of vanguard, anatomy-inspired scaffolds for tissue engineering. Original research contributions referring to both in vitro and in vivo studies as well as reviews and mini-reviews are welcome for this Special Issue.

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. 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.
