Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The most important barrier to the creation of a comprehensive methodology of multi-scale failure assessment is the limited osmosis between scientists of different disciplines investigating these phenomena from different points of view. Aiming at overcoming this restriction via collaboration and knowledge exchange, this Special Issue of Foundations will bring together scientists and engineers from both academia and industry who have studied fracture-related phenomena at different scales and/or from different points of view. It is expected to result not only in an improved understanding between different scholars, but also in beneficial results for the society at large. 
Researchers are welcome to contribute to all areas associated with multi-scale fracturing, especially in the  fields of acoustic emission and electromagnetic radiation induced by multi-scale fracturing. 

Kind regards,

Dr. Vladimir Frid

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.
