eCM Special issues are focussed on hot topics in research within the scope of eCM. The special issues have invited guest editors from the topic area and run within the focussed themes. eCM special issues allow both invited papers (including reviews, tutorial papers, letter to the editor) and open submitted research papers. All papers (invited and open submitted) undergo full peer review. Special Issues' manuscripts can be submitted until the indicated deadline but will be published immediately upon acceptance. All accepted manuscripts will receive a 25% discount on the Article Processing Charge (APC), i.e. 750CHF instead of 1000CHF.
Tendons and Ligaments Special Issue
This Special Issue aims to deliver an up-to-date synopsis on tendon stem/progenitor cell biology under degenerative and regenerative conditions, cell-to-matrix/material interactions controlling cell behaviour, 3D niches/models, tendon engineering and biofabrication strategies as well as repair/regeneration models. We encourage researchers to contribute to this Special Issue with original research or review articles along the above-described topics.
Keywords: Tendon, ligament, enthesis, myotendinous junction, stem/progenitor cells, cell differentiation, biomechanics, extracellular matrix, degeneration, injury/rupture, biomaterials, 3D niche, tissue engineering, biofabrication, repair, regeneration.
Submission deadline: 31st of August 2021
