We are pleased to invite you to submit an article to this Special Issue, entitled “Advances in Pickering-Emulsion-Based Drug Delivery Systems”. Pickering emulsions are surfactant-free emulsions stabilized by solid particles. Their unique structure endows Pickering emulsions with good stability, excellent biocompatibility, and environmental friendliness. Pickering emulsions have displayed great potential in drug delivery, e.g., high drug loading and stability, controlled release, targeted delivery, and adjuvant function. An increased interest in Pickering-emulsion-based drug delivery systems has emerged over the last 15 years.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum to promote the development and biomedical applications of Pickering emulsions. Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Potential topics include the following: novel solid stabilizers, types, and preparations of Pickering emulsions; mechanisms and factors governing the formation and stability of Pickering emulsions; achievements of Pickering emulsions in terms of enhanced drug delivery via various routes, e.g., oral, dermal, pulmonary, and parenteral administration; the in vivo fates of Pickering emulsions and factors affecting their fates; clinical dosage forms; and quality control. Other submissions that facilitate the development of Pickering emulsions are also welcome.

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. Pharmaceutics 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.
