Aluminum and its alloys are widely employed in automobiles, aircraft, shipbuilding and other industries due to their good combination of technological characteristics, such as being light weight and possessing excellent mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and technological properties under casting and deformation. The products fabricated from aluminum alloys are obtained via casting and thermomechanical treatment. The microstructure, phase composition that forms during casting, heat treatment, and thermomechanical treatment of the alloys define the final properties and applications of the material.
The current pace of industrial development requires materials with enhanced mechanical and technological properties, with respect to a complex combination of characteristics. The optimization of the structure and phase composition of alloys, and the search for promising alloying systems and elements for the development of new materials with enhanced operational and technological properties, is an urgent task; this must be achieved in order to expand the application of aluminum alloys and improve the level of technology.
The submission of research articles focusing on the development of prospective Al alloys, the optimization of casting and deformation technology, and the evaluation of their structure and phase composition under casting, heat and thermomechanical treatment is highly 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. Metals 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 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.
