Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The field of additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, has evolved significantly over time, reshaping material paradigms. The global prominence of AM highlights the significance of this Special Issue, uniting cross-disciplinary fields to navigate current needs and empower innovation. This Issue features state-of-the-art reviews and pioneering research on innovative AM materials, including composites, polymers, and conductive, magnetic, and smart materials, as well as materials for biomedical applications. Contributions concerning new AM technologies and process optimization, material design for AM, and characterization of AM parts are welcome. In this Special Issue, materials engineered for next-generation AM applications are explored, including, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Novel materials tailored for AM;
- Advancements in AM processes;
- New applications of AM;
- Specialized characterization techniques;
- Establishment of quality control protocols.

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.
