Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High-entropy alloys (HEAs), a novel type of multi-principal alloys, have attracted increasing attention due to their high strength, decent ductility at extreme conditions (e.g., cryogenic temperature and high strain rate), good corrosion, and irradiation resistance. Essentially, these distinguished properties result from their unique microstructure, including severe lattice distortion, local chemical order, and complicated heterostructure. Thermodynamics analysis is an effective way of revealing the mechanisms for phase formation, predicting microstructure, and guiding alloy design. However, the complex multiple-principal components of HEAs challenge the establishment of thermodynamic models, thermodynamic databases, and phase diagrams. Thus, articles that highlight the recent advances and future directions of thermodynamics for HEAs are significant and meaningful. This Special Issue aims to report recent progress in the thermodynamics of HEAs, including but not limited to the development of thermodynamic parameters and models, the creation of phase diagrams, as well as the thermodynamical calculation of HEAs.

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. Entropy 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.
