Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in the intertwined fields of superconductivity and magnetism, two of the most fascinating phenomena in condensed matter physics. Superconductivity has been a subject of intense research since its discovery in 1911 due to its fascinating properties such as the current transport without dissipations. On the other hand, magnetism has been known to humanity for thousands of years but continues to surprise researchers with its richness and complexity. In recent years, the interplay between superconductivity and magnetism has emerged as a fertile ground for discovering new physics and developing novel applications. This Special Issue aims to capture the state of the art in this exciting fields, with a particular focus on the following topics:

  1. Recent Advances: We invite contributions that report on the latest experimental and theoretical developments in superconductivity and magnetism. These can include, but are not limited to, high-temperature superconductors, unconventional superconductivity, quantum spin liquids, and topological magnetic materials.
  2. New Trends: We are interested in articles that identify and discuss emerging trends in superconductivity and magnetism. This could involve new materials, novel experimental techniques, or innovative theoretical approaches.
  3. Applications: Finally, we seek papers that explore the potential applications of superconducting and magnetic materials in various domains such as energy, information technology, medicine, and transportation.

We hope that this Special Issue will serve as a valuable resource for researchers in the field and stimulate further advances in our understanding of superconductivity and magnetism. Regular articles, communications, and reviews are all welcome. We look forward to your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
