Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is the second volume of the previously successful Special Issue on "Biomaterials for Cartilage and Bone Tissue Engineering".

In the realm of clinical orthopedics, the successful regeneration of weight-bearing bone defects and critical-sized cartilage defects is still challenging. A valid approach to this is tissue engineering. This Special Issue is dedicated to recent developments in biomaterials for scaffolds for repairing and regenerating tissues such as bones, cartilage, tendons, meniscus, and ligaments, from synthesis to production methods. Topics of interest for this Special Issue also include cell–biomaterial surface interactions and bone cell mechanotransduction.

I hope that this Special Issue will provide new insights to the scientific community in this ever-expanding research field. The scientific contributions on these topics may be submitted in the form of original articles or reviews. I look forward to receiving your manuscripts.

Dr. Francesca Scalera
Guest Editor

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. Bioengineering 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 2700 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.
