Top Special Issues in Medicine 2021 Graphic

A collection of some of the most impactful Special Issues in Medicine from 2021.


A Special Issue is a collection of articles that concentrates on a topical research area within the scope of a journal. These Issues provide a venue for research on emerging areas, highlight important subdisciplines, or describe new cross-disciplinary applications.

Last year, we successfully launched over 290 Special Issues across our portfolio of Medicine journals.

Keep up to date with some of the hot topics this year with a selection of the most impactful Special Issues from 2021.
