Dental Regenerative Biology Special Issue: This Special Issue intends to provide a comprehensive overview of how dental tissues respond to destructive insults, highlight the cues that are involved in their regeneration and report on the most recent developments in dental regeneration involving a combination of tissue engineering and stem-cell biology.
Submission deadline: 28th of February 2021

Bone Healing Special Issue: Although the regenerative capacity of bone is impressive, its failure to heal in certain circumstances continues to present clinical problems despite the high volume of multi-disciplinary research in this area. Approaches to improve bone formation in a clinically useful manner are drawn from many areas including biology, materials science, engineering, chemistry, physics and veterinary medicine.
Submission deadline: 28th of February 2021

Orthopaedic Infection Special Issue: Orthopaedic infections, including fracture-related infection (FRI), peri-prosthetic joint infection (PJI), septic arthritis and osteomyelitis, remain amongst the most challenging complications in orthopaedic and musculoskeletal surgery. These infections have been convincingly shown to delay healing, worsen functional outcome and incur significant socio-economic costs.
Submission deadline: 28th of February 2021

All Special Issues accepted manuscripts will receive a 25% discount on the Article Processing Charge (APC), i.e. 750CHF instead of 1000CHF.
