Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


It is estimated that global wave energy resources total 32,000 TWH/year and have great potential as an alternative to fossil energy sources to combat climate warming and ultimately achieve a green transformation of the energy structure due to its huge reserves, high energy flow density, ease of access, and low environmental impact. In the past 30 years, a variety of energy acquisition principles have been proposed, but the cost of survival and safety has remained high, preventing most power generation devices from entering the commercialization phase. This Special Issue aims to update the latest developments related to the field of wave energy, including, but not limited to, new concepts, modeling methods, control strategies, cost management, and hybrid systems. The following is a list of topics to be covered, but any other topics within the above scope are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 2300 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.
