Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The solid state materials with a considerable caloric effect are those that exhibit a first-order phase transition, which can be induced by various external stimuli, such as a magnetic field. Magnetocaloric effect (MCE) is heating or cooling of magnetic material when the applied magnetic field changes. At the heart of the MCEs lays coupling between the magnetic moments and external the magnetic field, and in some cases, the MCE involves structural transitions concomitant with magnetic transitions.

In this special issue, the articles should improve:

  1. Theoretical prediction of the magnetocaloric effect (thermodynamics, magnetism)
  2. Magnetocaloric Materials.
  3. Applications studies and development (actuators, sensors, magnetic refrigeration). Magnetic refrigeration based on the caloric effect of solid-state materials is supposed to be one of the most promising approaches.

The purpose of this special issue is to highlight the latest developments in the shaping of Magnetocaloric Materials. Researchers are therefore invited to present all their original scientific and technical articles of a theoretical and experimental nature on a wide range of materials and processes.

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. Magnetism 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.
