Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the most important properties of metals and alloys is their ability to deform permanently without breaking cohesion, known as plasticity. It is this property that makes possible the plastic processing of metals in processes including rolling, forging, pressing, drawing, and obtaining finished products and semi-finished products such as rods, profiles, sheets, pipes, and wires. The functional properties of structural materials, especially their mechanical characteristics, are significantly influenced by the chemical composition of the alloy, the manufacturing technology, and the heat and plastic processing used, which determine the material's crystalline structure and macro- and microstructure, as well as the presence or absence of texture. In this Special Issue, we will focus on the effect of the cold and hot plastic deformation process on changes in the structure and properties of modern and advanced metallic materials (i.e., Austenitic stainless steel–ASS, High-Strength Low-Alloy–HSLA, low-carbon high-Mn TWIP steel, high-manganese austenitic steel, non-ferrous alloys, and others). In addition, in this issue we will address the welding of advanced materials and, therefore, their joining technologies to ensure high-quality joints and high mechanical properties of the obtained joints. 

We are pleased to invite you to submit original research papers, short communications, or review articles that describe the current state of knowledge in the field of Plastic Deformation and Welding of Metallic Materials. 

Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Characterization of deformed materials (microstructure, texture, mechanical properties, etc.).

- Characterization of welded materials (microstructure, mechanical properties, etc.).

- Welding of metallic materials.

- Advanced fusion and solid-state welding technologies of materials.

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.
