Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioactive polymers for drug delivery and release are an important branch of polymers. Bioactive polymers will play an important role in future medical treatments and diagnostics. Their intrinsic properties enable the development of novel drugs and treatments. For these reasons, research on bioactive polymers for drug delivery has been a hot topic, with rapid progress in medical polymers, as well as in biomedical chemistry, although there are still some difficulties in clinical application.

This Special Issue is dedicated to exploring the contemporary state of bioactive natural and synthetically derived polymers in biomedical fields, such as tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, bioengineering, targeted drug discovery and delivery, implantation, and wound repair and healing.

Dr. Guanghui Zhao

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.
