Self-healing polymers is one of the most cutting-edge topics in modern materials science. Self-healing polymers are special class of materials, which can heal the internal defects/cracks or damage generated in any matrix and can rebuild the mechanical properties (e.g., tensile strength) of the cracked part through an autonomic healing process. Such smart substances often have promising mechanical, thermal, optical, and biomimetic properties.
The following modern directions in the development of self-healing polymers could be noted: cross-linked polymers, polymerization of multifunctional monomers, thiol-based polymers, poly(urea-urethane), vitrimers, microcapsule healing, 1D, 2D and 3D vascular based polymeric systems, hollow tube polymers, discrete channels and interconnected networks in polymers, carbon nanotube networks, sacrificial thread stitching, self-healing coatings, self-healing cementitious materials, self-healing ceramics, self-healing metals, self-healing organic dyes, self-healing of ice, bio-based healing.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight and review modern trends and attract the attention of the scientific community to the problem of self-healing polymers. All types of papers (reviews, mini-reviews, full papers, short communications, technical notes, highlights, etc.) are welcome for consideration.

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.
