Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on “Biocompatible Polymers for Tissue Engineering and Drug Delivery” is devoted to the dissemination of high-quality original research articles or comprehensive reviews on cutting-edge developments in this interdisciplinary field. In recent years, polymer science and technology has been driven by scientific breakthroughs in biomedical applications. A large number of polymeric materials have been developed for biomedical applications, and new advances are being made for the treatment of different diseases, promoting human well-being. The increasing interest in polymeric materials may be due to their synthesis, which is often relatively low-cost and easy, as well as their potential to obtain a wide range of properties and functionalities for biomedical applications. This excitement is fostered through the convergence of physical, digital, and biological sciences, which will bring about profound changes in the way we design and produce biomedical devices, especially concerning the interfaces between polymeric and biological materials.

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. Polymers 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 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.
