Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental challenges and resource constraints have led to a growing demand for sustainable technologies. Foster innovation vision based on products, processes and solutions designed to leverage a reduction in the impacts of energy production; a digitalisation of the monitoring systems; the development of smart and eco-materials, is key to build a scientific body of knowledge that seeks to break the barriers of sustainable innovation.

To reap the potential for this Special Issue on “Innovative Technologies Applied to Sustainable Solutions: Energy, Monitoring Systems and New Materials Production”, we encourage researchers to submit critical reviews and original unpublished research articles which would provide the most recent insights and advances regarding the following topics (however not limited to):

  • Sustainable energy systems
  • Hydrogen generation and storage
  • Real time monitoring
  • Innovative smart systems
  • New and advanced materials/nanomaterials
  • Materials’ life cycle analysis

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 2000 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.
