Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to cover a number of key challenges in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) design. Authors are invited to report comprehensive theoretical or experimental studies that provide new insights in the field of SOFC technology. This Issue will accept articles considering the various kinds of SOFC, including proton ceramic fuel cells. We especially encourage authors addressing to following aspects areas: design of advanced functional materials, unique methods for stack assembling, new approaches to the electrochemical assessment of SOFC’s components and interfaces, studies of degradation processes in operating conditions as well as long-term stability tests.

Material design, as the broadest relevant field, involves the study of electrolytes, buffer layers, both types of electrodes as well as interconnectors. We encourage authors to explore not only electrochemical aspects of materials, but also thermodynamic, kinetic, catalytic, microstructural and mechanic characteristics.

According to IJMS’s primary purpose, research considering SOFC processes at a molecular level is especially welcomed. The Issue invites researchers in the field to submit full-length articles and beneficial reviews concerning the topic of SOFC. Our aim for this new Special Issue is to collect high-quality, valuable manuscripts that will contribute to our mission of advancing the discipline.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
