Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Heterogeneous photocatalysis has focused on the development of optical semiconductors for applications, such as water/wastewater treatments and solar fuel production. This Special Issue seeks to highlight the research achieved by female scientists as the co-authors (including the first and corresponding author), increasing their visibility in the wider photocatalysis community. Authors with expertise in the use of optical semiconductor derivatives for photo-induced technologies, ranging from environmental remediation to solar fuel production, among others, are cordially invited to submit their manuscripts to this Special Issue of the Applied Sciences Journal. Significant full papers and review articles are welcome. The topics of the Special Issue will cover various aspects of photocatalysis in all of its diversity, as well as other areas on the boundaries, such as materials science and engineering and nanotechnology.

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 papers will be 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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
