Special Issue

Please access the Preliminary Program on the Program page

The International Organizing Committee of 9th Symposium on Biodegradable Metals is proud to announce that Bioactive Materials, a KeAi young open-access young journal with a strong ambition, endorsed the Symposium and will provide strong collaboration to highlight the scientific content of the Symposium. Regular papers, reviews and short communications will be published in a special issue (after regular submission to the Journal and full peer-review).

The main topics of consideration for this special issue will include:

Materials development, design, processes, surfaces and interfaces;
Corrosion, processes, degradation, assessment, standardization procedures;
In vitro works, including the assessment of the performances by in vitro processes;
In vivo results, prediction of the preclinical and clinical performances, methods for assessing the in vivo results, including imaging, non-destructive testing, and others;
Any other pertinent research devoted to biodegradable metals

Although Bioactive Materials is new, please note that the impact of the manuscript that could be eventually published here will be strongly enhanced by its publication in a special issue comprising a whole cluster of papers focused on biodegradable metals. The special issue will be limited to 30 papers, so start planning today your next paper in the special issue on Biodegradable Metals in Bioactive Materials,

Please note that a special service for English revision at minimal cost is being currently explored to maximize the chances of publication of your full paper.
