Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Additive manufacturing techniques have attracted considerable attention in several commercial and research applications, due to their potential to fabricate complex structures with high reproducibility and control over the fabrication process and the final microstructure. In the field of tissue engineering, these properties are pivotal to produce scaffolds, cell constructs, 3D models, and devices meeting the physiological requirements and specifically designed for personalized medicine.

This Special Issue, titled “Latest Research of Additive Manufacturing Techniques in Tissue Engineering”, aims to explore the latest advances in additive manufacturing in the field of tissue engineering by showcasing research papers, short communications, and review articles.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • methodologies and approaches for the design and fabrication of one-, two- and three-dimensional constructs from millimiter to submicron-size fibers for tissue engineering applications;
  • characterization of tissue engineering products for both hard and soft tissue applications;
  • exploitation of 3D printing strategies for device prototyping for personalized medicine;
  • fabrication of tools, enabling solutions to tissue engineering issues;
  • simulation and modeling of the fabrication process.

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. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
