Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue (SI) publishes original research articles, review articles, and short communications covering repair, reinforcement, and conservation methods and materials of existing building stock (steel, masonry, timber, reinforced concrete, and glass structures). The SI will reflect the application possibilities of new sustainable materials and methods, advanced materials, natural-fiber composites, mortars, alloys, and metals, inspiring the creation of next-generation solutions beyond conventional construction materials and traditional intervention methods and materials. We welcome reports from innovative applications and case studies and test projects. Computational and analytical manuscripts are also of interest provided they are design- or application-oriented. Reinforcement and conservation techniques and materials from interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaborations are particularly welcome. Articles with a focus on the effects of climate change, natural and man-made hazards, and combined hazards in existing building stock are invited.
Prof. Dr. Marco Corradi
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. 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.
