Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For tribology, the acquisition of information between friction surfaces, which change from moment to moment, is very important. In situ measurements can acquire crucial information on tribological phenomena and changes in their properties in real time. Along with advances in measurement and analysis technologies in recent years, the reality of previously unknown friction and wear phenomena is now well understood through in situ measurements. In addition, various novel methods of in situ measurements have also been developed and utilized.

In the Special Issue entitled "New Advances in In Situ Measurements of Friction and Wear Phenomena", original papers focusing on in situ measurements of tribological phenomena and properties from multifaceted viewpoints such as test methods, measurement methods, surface analysis methods, and data analysis methods are welcomed. Furthermore, the latest topics will be welcomed to aim for a deeper understanding of friction and wear phenomena in various tribomaterials and tribological systems through in situ measurements. Our hope is that this Special Issue will be utilized to achieve a breakthrough in realizing a sustainable society for the future. We look forward to receiving your submission.

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.
