Special Issue Information
The pharmaceutical industry is facing an unprecedented challenge in terms of market demand and volatility. This poses the problem of advancing the current system of production with new technologies capable of guaranteeing more flexibility, increased productivity, and operational excellence.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect state-of-the-art knowledge in advanced technologies for pharmaceutical manufacturing. Special focus will be devoted to process analytical technologies (PAT), whose application enables higher yields and cost reduction through better process understanding. Contributions devoted to the development and application of modeling approaches for the design and control of pharmaceutical production, in the framework of the quality by design (QbD) concept, are also welcomed. A key point of the Special Issue is the potential application of PAT and model-based design to the development of continuous production processes, whose implementation would represent an important milestone towards a fully flexible, high-quality, and easily scalable production pipeline.
Topics include but are not limited to applications in the following areas:
- Monitoring and optimization of production processes;
- Non-invasive monitoring of freeze-drying process;
- New trends in drying process of sensible products;
- Continuous crystallization and freeze-drying;
- Quality by design and model-based approaches.
Submission of original research work or review articles is equally 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 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.
