Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is focused on highlighting the most recent contributions in the field of materials science and engineering and surface strengthening and modification of metallic materials from a broad range of applications, from aerospace to nuclear engineering. The main applications are related to materials and process performance involved in engineering applications and the post-processing and treatment procedures. This Special Issue will focus on the improvement of the behavior and performance of metallic materials through surface modification and peening technologies. We welcome the submission of various papers related to surface strengthening and modification of materials and their improved properties, from experimental approaches and modeling/simulation to advanced insights into materials and surface post-treatment procedures. It is also encouraged to submit papers on numerical simulation and computational dynamic analysis of surface strengthening processes due to the continuously increasing demands for advanced computer solutions.

In addition, this Special Issue welcomes interesting research papers from the 8th ICLPRP.

For this Special Issue of Metals, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit papers and review articles.

We look forward to your valuable contributions.

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.
