In acknowledgment of the significance of this Special Issue, I would like to thank Symmetry and the MDPI publishing group for facilitating this significant literature search on behalf of the entire scientific community.
Parallel to the development of technology and industry, there is absolutely no doubt that many materials of the forthcoming generation have found their way into various applications today. In addition to the manufacture of these materials, an extraordinary amount of effort is devoted to their symmetry through continual development and to ensuring the most ideal conditions of application.
Today, the popularity of glass materials is rising steadily, its use being particularly prominent in radiation protection and nuclear material management processes. Glass materials are special due to their high mechanical qualities, transparency, and reconstruction suitability. The transparency afforded by certain high-density glasses, as well as the simultaneous monitoring of the source and management of the patient, are advantages with crucial functions. Obtaining optimal absorption, optical, mechanical, physical, and thermal properties for glass materials, however, is challenging. Consequently, extensive efforts have been made in the literature.
This Special Issue aims to contribute to the scientific community by collating discussions of glass materials that can be recommended for use in nuclear fields, nuclear source transportation, nuclear waste control, patient monitoring, and all other industrial and medical arenas by focusing and tailoring on their symmetry to various properties of multifunctional glasses. Another major objective of this Special Issue is to introduce the scientific community to bioactive glass materials in similar way.
I look forward to receiving your support and contributions to our special issue, entitled "Symmetry in Glass Systems: Nucleation, Mechanics, and Properties". Please note that all submitted papers must be within the general scope of the Symmetry journal.

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. Symmetry 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 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
