Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Ceramic materials are largely used in industry or key technologies of the 21st century. Important developments have been made during the last few decades concerning the fabrication of new functional or structural ceramics. So, it is necessary to take stock of the progresses and developments made in recent years.
Advanced ceramics can fulfill many functions that can be briefly recalled: electrical, optical, magnetic, chemical, thermal, thermomechanical, nuclear, military, biomedical functions. These functions determine their applications and, therefore, their development.
The aim of this Special Issue on “advances in ceramics” is to present the latest developments concerning advanced ceramics from fabrication to properties and applications.
I am asking scientists to propose short communications, full papers or reviews corresponding to this Special Issue. The following topics can be addressed:
- Powder synthesis, ceramic processing and shaping;
- Sintering: conventional, cold sintering, flash sintering, field-assisted sintering, pressure-assisted sintering;
- Additive fabrication;
- Advanced structural ceramics and composites;
- Refractories and UHT ceramics;
- Functional ceramics;
- Ceramic coatings and thin films;
- Ceramics and energy;
- Ceramics and environment;
For each topic, modeling can be considered.
Prof. Dr. Gilbert Fantozzi
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 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. Ceramics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
