Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
With the rapid development of nanotechnology, nanomaterials have been widely applied in many industrial sectors, including medicine, consumer products, and electronics. While such technology has brought benefits and convenience into our daily lives, it may also potentially threaten human health and environmental safety. However, knowledge of the adverse health effects of these nanomaterials is still very limited. In this Special Issue, we hope to bring together significant research that advances the knowledge base on the adverse effects of nanomaterials, as well as the regulatory aspects of nanomaterials. In vitro, in vivo, and human studies that contribute to our understanding of human health and environmental impacts are welcome. Of particular interest will be papers that describe studies where modes of action and adverse outcome pathways could be evaluated during nanomaterials intoxication. In addition, alternative testing methods using zebrafish, drosophila, and C. Elegant are also welcome. This Special Issue will focus on the publication of original manuscripts and critical reviews to advance our understanding of the possible health effects of nanomaterials, as well as the means to protect workers and consumers exposed to them.

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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
