Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present this Special Issue on Soft and Hard Magnetic Materials: Latest Advances and Prospects which is open for submissions. This Special Issue aims to provide researchers with an overview of some of the most relevant aspects of today’s magnetic materials research, from fundamental properties to latest applications and from their fabrication and characterization to their implementation as key elements in scientific and technological devices with numerous uses. Included in this extensive field are physical and chemical sensing; biomedical applications, such as in drug delivery, diagnosis, and hyperthermia detection; high-frequency, microwave, and millimeter-wave devices; transformers and inductors; energy production, conversion, and storage; automotive applications; and high-density recording media. Hence, magnetic materials in their bulk form or in the form of ribbons, thin films, layers and multilayers, nanowires, nanoparticles, and nanodots are meticulously and proficiently optimized, including the control of their structure and their morphology, which leads to interesting physical phenomena closely related to the magnetic properties used in that wide range of high-performance applications.

Topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Soft and/or hard magnetic materials fabrication
  • Soft and/or hard magnetic materials characterization
  • Magnetic materials for physical or chemical sensing
  • Nanomagnetism and biomedical applications
  • Magnetism in molecular/ionic/organic-based systems
  • Magnetic materials for spintronics devices
  • Magnetic information storage and MRAM
  • Magnetic materials for energy applications
  • Multiferroic heterostructures for magnetoelectronics

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Magnetochemistry.

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.
