Materials is planning to publish a special Focus Issue dedicated to original research papers on experimental and theoretical aspects of “Structure and electronic properties of emerging superconductors”. This is motivated by the fact that, in the real materials, the assumption of the periodic array of atoms arranged perfectly to describe the macroscopic properties does not always hold with the diverging structure, with large consequences on the electronic properties of the materials. Among others, the frontline examples are the high Tc superconductors, iron-based superconductors, dichalcogenide superconductors and other related functional materials.
We are inviting you to contribute an article to this Focus Issue on this expanding area of research on superconductors and closely related functional materials. This will mostly be an invitation-only volume; however, the editor may select a few worthy contributions from unsolicited proposals received from authors. The manuscripts accepted for publication will undergo the standard review process of the journal.
We expect this Focus Issue to be comprehensive and impactful, and we hope that you will accept our invitation.
Prof. Dr. Naurang L. Saini
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.
