It is our pleasure to announce the Special Issue “Advanced Coatings for Biomedical Applications”, which will be published in the journal Coatings. It will serve as an international medium for discussion of topics contributing to a better understanding of the formation, characterization, and modeling of thin films and coatings for modern biomedicine, including but not limited to nitrides, oxides, oxynitrides, intermetallics, polymers, and others.
This Special Issue aims to collect articles discussing the topics related to the application formation of surface coatings using Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD), Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), and other methods. Manuscripts discussing the surface structures formed by different treatment techniques (e.g., laser beam, electron beam, etc.) with enhanced functional properties for biomedical applications, as well as the modeling of the processes, are also welcome. We invite you to submit a manuscript; full papers, communications, and reviews are welcome.
The scope of this Special Issue will serve as a forum for papers on the following concepts:
- Thin film and coating deposition;
- Antibacterial properties;
- Corrosion properties;
- Mechanical properties.

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. Coatings 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 2600 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.
