Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biodegradable polymers have important properties which make them very useful for the preparation of different drug delivery systems. The wide range forms of drugs, as well as their possibility to coat or enclose active substance inside polymers, make them powerful pharmaceutical tools. The encapsulation of active substances in polymeric particles, as well as the preparation of hydrogels or eye preparations, make them important excipients. Also, the modification of structure or complex (mixed) preparations plays a new role and brings novel solutions in drug delivery systems.

This Special Issue aims to publish articles concerned with the use of new compositions of biodegradable polymers in the field of pharmaceutical drug development and their current or potential applications. Authors are invited to submit both original research and reviews.

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. 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.
