Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polymer materials are a type of high-molecular-weight material with unique chemical structures and diverse physical and chemical properties. Widely used in fields such as food, medicine, materials, and electronics, the mechanical and rheological properties of polymer materials are among the key characteristics for their applications. In recent years, due to the advantages derived from low density, high corrosion resistance, high waterproofness, and easy manufacturing, polymers have also been widely used in civil and environmental engineering. Therefore, the scientific community must develop a deep understanding of and conduct thorough research into the mechanical and rheological behaviors of polymer materials. To this end, we are launching a Special Issue of Polymers, entitled "Study of the Mechanical and Rheological Behavior of Polymer Materials". This volume aims to explore the mechanical and rheological behavior of polymer materials, promote academic exchange and cooperation, provide a platform for scholars to showcase research results and exchange research ideas, improve scholars' and engineers' understanding and awareness of the mechanical and rheological properties of polymer materials, and provide a more scientific basis to and guidance for the design and application of polymer materials.

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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2700 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.
