Special Issue "Innovative Processing Routes for Electroactive Materials"
A special issue of Ceramics (ISSN 2571-6131).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2021.
It is our pleasure to open submissions for the present Special Issue dedicated to innovative processing routes for the fabrication of electroactive materials, with specific focus on dielectrics, piezoelectrics, ferroelectrics, multiferroics and thermoelectrics. We invite original research contributions in the form of short communications, full-length articles and reviews to share and disseminate the latest developments on the processing of electroactive materials that enable overcoming the difficulties encountered using conventional methods and identifying appropriate processing schedules for the fabrication of novel materials. Technical manuscripts on powder technologies, synthesis procedures and novel sintering techniques, including cold sintering, flash sintering and current assisted sintering, as well as manufacturing routes for mass production that can support industrial-scale processing of novel materials, are considered particularly appropriate for this Special Issue. The main aim is to compile original and insightful papers that can guide materials scientists to solve major processing issues and obtain high-quality materials with desired properties.

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. Ceramics 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 1200 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.
