Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

The "Rising Stars in Tribological Research" collection aims to shed light on the groundbreaking contributions of young and emerging researchers in the ever-evolving field of tribology, our beloved and multidisciplinary science concerned with friction, lubrication, and wear. By showcasing the latest advancements and novel perspectives from rising stars in this dynamic field, this collection seeks to accelerate progress and inspire future directions in tribological research. The collection covers a wide range of topics within tribology, encompassing experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches. It includes studies exploring the fundamental aspects of friction and wear, the development of advanced lubricants, surface engineering techniques, and innovative solutions for reducing friction and wear in various engineering applications. By bringing together a diverse array of cutting-edge studies, this collection offers valuable insights and inspiration for experts and researchers, fostering collaborations and advancing the frontiers of tribological science and engineering. The innovative approaches and sustainable solutions presented in this collection have the potential to drive advancements in numerous industries and improve the overall efficiency and reliability of mechanical systems.

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 collection 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.
