About Alloys


Alloys (ISSN 2674-063X) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on alloys. It publishes reviews, regular research papers (articles), and communications. Our aim is to publish timely experimental and theoretical research results in a rapid and readily accessible manner.

Manuscripts dealing with alloys and the relationship between the microstructure, properties and processing of all kinds of alloys, including experimental, theoretical and computational research, are welcome.


The scope of Alloys covers the preparation, characterization and application of all alloys. The main subject areas include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Ferrous alloys including all steel grades;
  • The light alloys: Al, Mg and Ti;
  • High entropy alloys, bulk metallic glasses and intermetallics;
  • Alloys of the less commonly researched metals such as alloys of Cu, Zn, Pb, Mo and the rare earth elements;
  • Special alloys such as those designed for corrosion resistance, high temperature performance; hydrogen storage and magnetic properties;
  • Research into alloy processing technologies such as thermo-mechanical processing, casting and additive manufacturing;
  • Theoretical and computational analysis of alloys such as phase field modelling, atomic-scale modelling and thermodynamic analyses;
  • Characterisation of alloys at all length scales;
  • Alloy properties and performance such as strength, fatigue, corrosion, wear and formability.

MDPI Publication Ethics Statement

MDPI is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). MDPI takes the responsibility to enforce a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure to add high quality scientific works to the field of scholarly publication. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, inappropriate authorship credit, and the like, do arise. MDPI takes such publishing ethics issues very seriously and our editors are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy. To verify the originality of content submitted to our journals, we use iThenticate to check submissions against previous publications.
