Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Feature Review Papers in Mechanical Engineering
On behalf of the journal Materials, I would like to invite all researchers to publish a paper in this Special Issue entitled “Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Polymeric Materials”. It is well known that, nowadays, polymeric materials are increasingly used in the most diverse areas, either alone, reinforced by nanoparticles or as a matrix of composite materials. On the other hand, sustainable polymers obtained from renewable resources are increasingly desired due to current government policies based on sustainability, concerns about the depletion of fossil resources, disposal and related issues. In this context, fundamental knowledge in terms of structure and/or mechanical properties is required to increase their use or replace the current ones with others that have a more sustainable nature.
In this context, this Special Issue intends to collect original research and comprehensive review papers in order to understand the current state of the art, as well as to obtain information on possible correlations between the structure and mechanical properties of polymers. All relevant contributions to this Special Issue are welcome.
Prof. Dr. Paulo Nobre Balbis dos Reis
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.
