Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last several decades, the biological effects of electromagnetic fields have been demonstrated. However, the biophysical mechanism of the interaction between electromagnetic fields and biological systems is still not understood. In fact, there is controversy between the electric and magnetic effects. The defining feature of bioelectromagnetism is that electric and magnetic effects are nonthermal; their interactions are below kBT levels.  The goal of this Special Issue is to bridge the knowledge gap between biophysical mechanisms and biological effects from the molecular level to the level of the organism.

The present Special Issue “The Status and Future of Bioelectromagnetism” aims to collect and publish recent advances in the area of bioelectromagnetism. We welcome all reviews and research articles concerned with interactions of electromagnetic fields in biological systems at the molecular level and large scales. This also includes the disruptive impact of emerging areas of electromagnetic therapeutics for cancer treatment. The keywords below summarize topics of special interest to this Issue.

Dr. Carlos F. Martino

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. Magnetochemistry 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.
