Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Membrane technologies using hollow fibers for different separation processes are of current interest to researchers since this membrane geometry enables the enhancement of applied process productivity, making its industrial implementation highly attractive. This Special Issue is a knowledge platform that aims to brings together all the recent advances in the broad scope of hollow fiber membrane science (i.e., design, preparation, modification and characterization of membranes including novel and green materials, as well as innovative fabrication and modification techniques), hollow fiber membrane module engineering (e.g., module size and structure optimization, membrane packing methodologies and packing density, module recycling, etc.), and hollow fiber membrane technologies for different applications (e.g., water purification, wastewater treatment, industry effluent treatment, gas separation, capture and storage, biomedical applications, etc.). 

Original research articles, case studies, reviews, and communications about experimental or theoretical studies as well as simulations related to hollow fiber membranes and their applications are welcome and encouraged.

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 2700 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.
