Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Plasma dynamics is an interdisciplinary field of study encompassing physics, engineering, chemistry, etc. In this Special Issue, we welcome submissions focusing on research related to the formation, evolution, and interactions of plasma, including but not limited to articles exploring the nonlinear behavior, turbulence properties, magnetic effects, and other aspects of plasma. Furthermore, we encourage discussions on the latest research findings regarding the applications of plasma in various fields. Plasma dynamics finds extensive applications in astrophysics, nuclear fusion, plasma technology, laser plasma, and other domains. Contributors are invited to explore the practical applications of plasma in energy generation, materials processing, space science, medicine, environmental engineering, and more. We look forward to receiving contributions that demonstrate originality and innovation, with the aim of advancing the field of plasma dynamics and promoting further applications in real-world scenarios.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
