Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Special Issue is to present the current progresses in the field of advanced electrode materials for next-generation “beyond lithium ion” batteries, such as sodium/potassium/zinc ion battery, lithium sulfur battery, lithium air battery and son on. With the materials-level advancements in LIBs approaching their limits, the demands for lower cost and higher energy density and the growing concerns related to natural resources have triggered the investigation of so-called “beyond Li-ion” technologies. It is unlikely that one single “beyond Li-ion technology” will address all issues of Li-ion. In this Special Issue, we aim to gather and facilitate research on advanced electrode materials to discuss the current status of various technologies and the aspects in which they may outperform Li-ion.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
