Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metrology, the science of measurement, is undergoing significant development in the light of new challenges of precision manufacturing and digital transformation. Recent developments in complex products, novel materials, advanced manufacturing processes, and enhanced measurement systems lead to new challenges for metrology in manufacturing. The fundamental tasks of metrology in manufacturing regarding conformity assessment, process control, and quality assurance are subject to new demands driven by cost reduction, environmental impact, and new manufacturing infrastructures based on data, services, and the Industrial Internet of Things.

This Special Issue aims to present some of the recent research in manufacturing metrology covering both fundamental research and applications. We welcome state-of-the-art reviews, cross-disciplinary research fronts, and industrial applications to highlight the current advancements in manufacturing metrology.

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. 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 1800 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.
