Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biomaterials (natural or synthetic) at the nanoscale refer to materials that are designed and engineered to interact with biological systems at the nanometer scale. The nanoscale dimension of these materials enables them to interact with biological molecules, cells, and tissues in unique ways, often leading to enhanced performance and capabilities compared to bulk materials. These materials are specifically tailored to have properties and functionalities that make them suitable for various applications in medicine, biology, biophysics, chemistry and materials science. Significant applications are associated with the synthesis and characterization of biomaterials for biomedical purposes, drug delivery and tissue engineering.

This Special Issue welcomes contributions in the form of full articles, short communications, or review articles on new results related to the following:

  • Characterization and imaging of biological systems and biomaterials at the nanoscale using advanced techniques such as atomic force microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and scanning probe microscopy;
  • Disease diagnosis and innovative therapies;
  • Drug delivery;
  • Tissue engineering.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
