Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The evaluation of electromagnetic fields generated by lightning discharges is extremely important in order to guarantee the reliability of electrical and electronic systems as well as the people safety. Modeling, analysis and numerical considerations represent crucial issues to be addressed in order to provide innovative solutions in the lightning protection field.

Researchers around the world are welcomed to provide their contribution in the field, focusing on innovative methods for the computation, analysis on particular frameworks where the protection should be enhanced and new models able to provide better insights in the lightning phenomenon.

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.
