Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Magnetic actuators are actuators which use magnetic force or Lorentz force, and are widely used in industry, defense, aviation, aerospace, and daily life. Magnetic actuators integrate electromagnetism, electronic technology, superconducting and cryogenic technology, control engineering, signal processing, mechanics, and dynamics. They have attracted extensive attention from scholars both nationally and internationally, thus representing a research hotspot in related fields. In order to solve the basic scientific problems and key technical problems related to magnetic actuators, and gather the frontier achievements of magnetic actuators and vibration control, Actuators has created a Special Issue, titled "Advanced Theory and Application of Magnetic Actuators", which aims to address all types of designed actuators using magnetic force or Lorentz force.

Following the success of the first volume of this Special Issue, which included 12 perspective papers, we decided to broaden the scope and compile a second volume for the publication of all types of manuscripts (reviews, perspectives, and research papers).

This Special Issue also cooperates with the 11th Chinese Symposium on Magnetic Levitation Technology and Vibration Control (, held on 4 August 2023–7 August 2023, Changsha, China. Authors of high-quality papers on topics related to this Special Issue presented at the conference are invited to submit extended versions of their work to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Actuators 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 2400 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.
