Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The coating is an important layer of material on the surface of the object, which protects the object and enhances the surface performance. The microstructure, thermal-mechanical properties and wear resistance of the coating itself determine the quality of the coating. This Special Issue, entitled “Microstructure, thermal-mechanical and anti-wearproperties of coatings”, will promote a platform for the sharing of knowledge among researchers in the field of coatings including theoretical analysis, numerical simulation, and experimental study. This Special Issue will cover a wide range of disciplines as follows:
- Microstructure of coating materials;
- Coating behavior using numerical and experimental methods;
- Friction and wear of coatings;
- Design of coating materials;
- Thermal and mechanical property of coating;
- Other aspects on coating material.

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.
