Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Copper alloys have a series of excellent properties, such as high electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, strength, and corrosion resistance, and are also easy to process. However, existing copper alloys and their related materials have not been able to keep up with the rapid development of high-tech industries such as electronic and electrical engineering, mobile communications, new energy vehicles, aerospace, and rail transportation. Therefore, it is important to develop new copper alloys with more advanced properties. The purpose of this Special Issue is to unite researchers in the field of copper alloys with the latest original research results and provide a reference for future studies on high-performance copper alloys.

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.
