Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the last few years, a great number of researches have been done in the so-called Heusler and half-Heusler compounds. These compounds are archetypical for so-called multifunctional materials since they have interesting magnetic, mechanical and, more recently, thermoelectric properties. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest developments in the search of new and promising Heusler of half-Heusler compounds especially (but not exclusively) in the field of thermoelectrics. Both theoretical and experimental contributions will be considered, as well as studies tackling the difficult question of the structure and stability of these materials.

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. Metals 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 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.
