Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High-strength steel demonstrates remarkable performance in industrial applications, such as in vehicles, ships, airplanes, construction, etc. However, the service life of high-strength steel, especially under extreme conditions such as cyclable loadings, high humidity and salinity, and low-to-high temperatures, requires improvement. Thus, the industrial application of high-strength steel needs further investigation of its microstructural evolution, mechanical properties, and corrosion and wear resistance in various service environments.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide Metals readers with the most up-to-date research on high-strength steel development for industrial applications. The scope is particularly related to high-strength steel material design, microstructural evolution in various environments, corrosion and wear mechanisms, the use of advanced techniques for testing, etc. We also welcome reviews and research articles.

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.
