Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Permanent magnets are one of the most important materials in modern technology, being widely used in industrial and military systems and everyday life. The fields of application of permanent magnets, such as the energy/electrical, information/communication technology, automotive/robotics, and biomedical engineering industries, are fully expanding, leading to an accelerated demand for high-performance permanent magnets. This, together with growing concerns about environmental degradation due to the exploitation of rare earths, rising costs, and availability problems of rare earths, has led to intense efforts worldwide to search for alternative materials with the potential to prepare new types of permanent magnets.

In this Special Issue, we would like to gather contributions that address the latest developments in the field of permanent magnets, such as improving magnetic properties, reasonable and balanced use of rare earth resources, recycling, and alternatives to rare-earth-based modeling.

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. Crystals 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.
