Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metallic materials play a vital role in the economic life of modern societies. The aim of this Special Issue is to cover all relevant aspects of the chemical and physical processes of the production, transformation and characterization of metallic materials in bulk, thin films, nanostructures and/or nanocomposites, as well as modeling aspects involving such structures.

Accordingly, this Special Issue welcomes original research and review manuscripts on the challenges and trends covering fundamental and experimental research, with a special focus on the design, synthesis, and characterization of any type of metallic material and/or alloys, and the study of their structure/property relationships.

We also welcome manuscripts on the development of new experimental concepts, from the transfer, chemical transformation, and high-resolution patterning of advanced thin films and nanomaterials to the design and fabrication of devices.

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.
