Special Issue Information
Due to the greenhouse effect caused by carbon dioxide, the whole world has urged for alternative energy sources. Alternative energy must be a low-polluting and permanently usable energy source, and proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEM-FCs) meet these characteristics. PEM-FCs are a high-efficiency and environmental friendly way of generating electricity, which is currently being valued by various countries, and furthermore each application of PEM-FCs has become the focus of development by companies. Both in academic and technological applications are increasingly important. Hopefully the fuel cells can bring us a pollution-free living space.
PEM-FCs have made great strides in the past few decades and also been made slow progress towards commercialization. However, in order to develop PEM-FCs to a widespread commercialization and serve all mankind, some related technologies and sciences still need to be improved. Therefore, this special issue aims to gather viewpoints from different fields of industry and academia, hoping to be of little help to the future development of PEM-FCs.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following: proton exchange membrane, composite membrane, inorganic acid doped membrane, catalysts, electrodes, gas diffusion layers, bipolar plates and reliability analysis for PEM-FCs.
I/We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Membranes 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 2200 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.
