Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Material sciences is a global branch of science that is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach. The latter is confirmed by the involvement of many different sciences including physics, chemistry, mathematics, solid and fluid mechanics, biology, and others that allow us to develop in this direction. Furthermore, understanding the behaviour of different materials and creating new forms and types is important for the development of mechanical and chemical engineering, electronics, medicine, civil engineering, and instrument engineering. This Special Issue is the first one that discusses the topic of materials sciences of the Foundations journal that presents important original research and discoveries on the connections between the structure, processing, properties, and performance of materials. It is devoted to new trends and directions in materials sciences in complicated and interweaving relationships with other sciences. It is a great opportunity to establish a community of writers and readers to debate the latest research and generate new ideas and research paths. We are open to analytical, numerical, and experimental papers related to materials preparation, analysis, and applications. Papers are welcome for this Special Issue in the format of state-of-the-art reviews, regular research papers, and rapid communications/letters devoted to breakthroughs in the material sciences.

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. Foundations 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 1000 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.
