Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrokinetic phenomenon has attracted significant interest due to its widespread applications in analytical chemistry, bioanalysis, energy conversion, water desalination, and environmental remediation. The advent of micro- and nano-fabrication technologies has led to further advances in the theory and applications of electrokinetic phenomenon, including electroosmosis, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, electrohydrodynamics, AC electrokinetics, and electrokinetics in porous media. Over the years, electrokinetics has become the preferred choice for transporting and manipulating fluids, ions, particles, droplets, cells, and biomolecules in miniaturized systems. This Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, and review articles on fundamentals and high-impact applications of electrokinetic phenomenon. We welcome submissions on theoretical, numerical and experimental works and review articles focusing on diverse applications of electrokinetics, not limited to micro and nanofluidic 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 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. Micromachines 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.
