Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Peptides are small molecules consisting of a couple or several amino acids coupled through peptide bonds. They have important uses in living organisms as hormones and chemical messengers and can be used for the design of novel therapies and innovative pharmaceuticals. The emergence of innovative engineered proteins, peptide biopolymers and peptide-based biomaterials for novel drug delivery, drug development, biosensors or tissue regeneration has encountered important challenges, such as their chemical and physical fragility (rapid degradation), poor or limited solubility and scarce permeability.

The aim of this Special Issue is to offer to our readers an updated and comprehensive glimpse of the recent in vitro and in vivo uses of peptide-based biomaterials for pharmaceutical applications. We invite full papers, communications and reviews covering topics related to the keywords below.

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. Pharmaceuticals 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 2900 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.
