Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

the advancement of knowledge of the biology of cells, tissues and organs and the pathogenesis of the related diseases, lead in the last year to an increase of interest in the design and production of biomimetic and bioinspired materials. This particular type of biomaterials are defined as a material replicating the key features of natural materials and/or biological structures. Indeed, the emerging science of biomimetics, by means of tissue and design engineering technique, aims to take the biological principles of work and mimics into biomaterials able to interface with cells, tissues, and organs.

This Special Issue aims to present the latest works in the research and development, in form of original articles or reviews, of biomimetic and bioinspired materials, to solicit the most important findings, to highlight the left challenges, and to provide the perspectives on the future direction.

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. Materials 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 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.
