Development of metallic materials with enhanced mechanical and functional properties is a key issue to fulfill the performance requirements of modern industry. These advancements can be achieved by engineering the surfaces and microstructures of metals and alloys. The knowledge of several aspects of phase transformations and surface modifications in metallic materials, which are strongly influenced by alloys’ compositions, coating techniques, and processing routes, plays a major role in improving the performance and increasing the lifespan of metallic components. In this Special Issue on “Surface Engineering and Phase Transformations in Metals and Alloys”, research and review articles addressing the influence of microstructure and surface features in all the functional and mechanical properties are welcome.
The main topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Tribological properties and surface engineering;
- Coating techniques and performances;
- Corrosion, oxidation, and diffusion barrier;
- Biocompatible alloys;
- Fundamental aspects of phase transformations;
- Advanced processing techniques;
- High-entropy alloys;
- Advanced high-strength steels;
- Light alloys for structural applications;
- Hydrogen storage alloys;
- Recycling and circular economy in metals and alloys.

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. Surfaces is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
