Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) based on organic electrolytes were commercialised in the early 1990s by Sony Corporation. Since then, these energy storage devices have been used in many applications, from portable devices to electric vehicles and grid-level energy storage. However, LIBs are approaching their limits in terms of energy and power densities, and present safety issues due to the use of flammable organic liquid electrolytes. Next-generation batteries are expected to address the previous challenges. Solid-state batteries (SSBs) have emerged as one of the preferred technologies to lead the next generation of charge storage devices. These batteries offer the advantage of safety when compared to conventional batteries, due to the replacement of the flammable organic electrolyte by a stable solid electrolyte. High densities can also be achieved in these batteries by using metallic anodes, which are impractical for batteries with organic liquids due to dendritic growth.

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. Batteries 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 2700 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.
