Mobility has continuously evolved to meet the demands of a society in continuous change, ranging from the transportation of an increasing number of people and goods around the globe, to the urgent need to reduce their impact on the environment. These demands have incentivized the development and improvement of technologies for more efficient mobility applied to all transport sectors, including road, rail, marine, and aircraft. In this regard, the research conducted on tribology has demonstrated to be crucial for the appropriate performance, maintenance, and increase in efficiency of these vehicles; wherever things are moving, lubrication, friction, and wear phenomena exist.
With this in mind, this second part of the Special Issue Tribology in Mobility looks forward to state-of-the-art contributions in a wide range of applications covering different aspect of tribology in mobility; from investigations on lubricated machine elements in combustion engines and hybrid powertrain technologies, to condition-based maintenance, oil and wear analysis and many more interesting topics.

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. Lubricants 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.
