Special Issue Information
Nanomaterials will potentially play an important role in medicine. Production and applications of nanomaterials in industry are still increasing. Furthermore, there are more than 1,300 marketed nanomaterial-based consumer products. Therefore, how nanomaterials diagnose and treat diseases and how they perturb normal biological systems will become top concerns. In recent years, researchers are actively engaged in such investigations. At the same time, technologies and methods are being developed to make targeted and biocompatible nanoparticles for medicinal and imaging applications. Since we started the Special Issue “Bioactive Nanoparticles”, responses and submissions from researchers have been enormous. As a result, three further Special Issues “Bioactive Nanoparticles” (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special _issues/bioactive_nanoparticles), Bioactive Nanoparticles 2012 (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues/nanoparticles_2012), and Bioactive Nanoparticles 2013 (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues/bioactive_nanoparticles_2013) have been published. This new Special Issue “Bioactive Nanoparticles 2014” will include research papers and review articles reflecting the most recent progress and solutions to challenges in this dynamic research area.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
