Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metallic nuclear materials, including metallic nuclear fuels and nuclear structural materials, have promising applications in many advanced nuclear reactors and in space nuclear power systems due to their inherent material characteristics. Metallic-material-based composite nuclear materials can also be used in high-flux reactors to produce isotopic neutron sources contributing to the development of nuclear medicine. Due to the extreme, high-temperature, high-pressure environment and the neutron irradiation in nuclear reactors, metallic materials experience complicated multi-field coupling behaviors, such as thermal–mechanical–chemical coupling. To better promote the development and application of metallic nuclear reactor materials, it is vitally important to fully understand their material characteristics and evolutionary behaviors during in-reactor service.

In this Special Issue, we welcome articles that contribute to the development of metallic nuclear reactor materials, including theoretical, computational, and experimental studies. This is an excellent opportunity for scholars all over the world to publish their latest research. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Prof. Dr. Shurong Ding

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
