Materials science is a key factor in driving technological development and economic growth. Since the silicon industrial revolution of the 1950s, research and developments in materials science have radically impacted and transformed our society by enabling the emergence of computer technologies, wireless communications, Internet, digital data storage technologies and widespread consumer electronics. Today’s emergent topics in materials science research, such as nano-materials, carbon based grapheme and nano-tubes, smart and multifunctional materials, spintronic materials, bio-materials and multiferroic materials, promise to deliver a new wave of technological advances and economic impact, comparable to the silicon industrial revolution of the 1950s.
In particular, the recent surge of interest in multiferroic materials has been driven by their fascinating physical properties, as well as their huge potential for technological applications. This Special Issue of “Physics, Measurements and Applications of Multiferroic and Magnetoelectric Materials” will be a one-stop resource to the solid-state multiferroics and magneto-electric materials communities, providing a collection of high quality reviews and articles covering all research aspects of multiferroic materials including measurements, applications and modelling.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
