Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biocompatible and biodegradable polymers are promising materials for tissue engineering applications. Through 3D printing, electrospinning, freeze drying, gas foaming, etc., mimicking extracellular matrix (ECM) structures can be produced to stimulate tissue regeneration physically. Biocompatible polymers are also regarded as excellent substrate loading with functional nanomaterials and biologically important polypeptides (such as growth factors) for the construction of multi-functional scaffolds. Multifunctional scaffolds hold potential to enhance cell attachment, cell proliferation, cell migration, cell elongation, cell differentiation, or expression of specific genes as excellent artificial scaffolds for tissue engineering.

The current issue aims to cover promising and novel research studies on developing functional or multifunctional polymeric scaffolds for tissue engineering. The key areas to be covered in this research topic may include but are not limited to:

  • Novel polymer synthesis and scaffolds fabrication processes;
  • Novel polymer scaffold development and modification processes;
  • Polymer scaffolds as medicine (including drugs and growth factors) carriers for tissue engineering;
  • Polymer scaffolds as substrates to enhance cell proliferation and cell differentiation for tissue engineering;
  • Conductive polymeric electrodes for tissue engineering;
  • Piezoelectric polymeric scaffolds for tissue engineering;
  • Influence and applications of biomaterials on tissue engineering.

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.
