The process of identifying the elements that lead to corrosion or rust on metals after exposure to typical atmospheric conditions is known as corrosion detection. This is essential for determining the materials' ability to withstand the existing environmental factors and vital in identifying the strength of materials before use in building, construction or any other operation.
Corrosion can be one of the biggest threats to the longevity of metals. It can pose safety risks to people working with metallic objects, huge equipment costs, and subsequent environmental damage. However, through its detection, it is possible to determine, examine and predict the strength and durability of the materials in use. This is why surface degradation monitoring and rust detection are so important. They help mitigate these risks and expenses by preventing the degradation of metallic surfaces over time, allowing problems to be addressed before they reach a critical point. It also improves safety, reduces costs and increases the efficiency of the monitored structures.
Based on all this, the suggested scope of this Special Issue includes (but is not limited to) the following concepts:
- Advanced corrosion detection and monitoring techniques;
- Improved knowledge of corrosion protection of steel surfaces;
- Intelligent industrial corrosion monitoring technology online;
- Novel anti-corrosion coatings or surface treatments with improved durability;
- New protection techniques of metals in extreme environments and conditions;
- Corrosion detection data information system.

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. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
