Feature papers represent the most advanced research with significant potential for high impact in the field. A Feature Paper should be a substantial original Article that involves several techniques or approaches, provides an outlook for future research directions and describes possible research applications.
Feature papers are submitted upon individual invitation or recommendation by the scientific editors and must receive positive feedback from the reviewers.
Editor’s Choice articles are based on recommendations by the scientific editors of MDPI journals from around the world. Editors select a small number of articles recently published in the journal that they believe will be particularly interesting to readers, or important in the respective research area. The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas of the journal.
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative—the Crystals Special Issue Mentor Program.
This program intends to provide an opportunity for early career scientists to enhance their editing, networking, and organizational skills and work closely with our journal to gain more editorial experience. Early career scientists who have novel ideas for new Special Issues of Crystals (ISSN: 2073-4352) will act as Guest Editors under the mentorship of an experienced scientist; this mentor could be a member of the Crystals Editorial Board or may be from other well-established research institutes or laboratories, etc.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please send your Special Issue proposal to the Crystals Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will discuss the process (i.e., mentor collaboration, Special Issue topic feasibility analysis, etc.) in further detail. When the Special Issue is closed, our office will provide certificates to all of the mentors and to those who complete the program. Younger scholars will be prioritized as candidates for our journal award.
In addition to the new Special Issue Mentor Program, Crystals will continue to welcome all Special Issue proposals based on hot research topics in the field.
