Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Coatings is going to reach an important milestone by publishing its 11th volume and, in celebration of this special occasion, we have taken the initiative to launch a Special Issue called "10th Anniversary of Coatings: Invited Papers for Thin Films Section".
In 2016, Coatings was accepted for indexing by Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE)—Web of Science, and we received our first impact factor (2.175) in 2017. The impact factor increased to 2.436 by 2019, and Coatings was included in Scopus and ranked 59/120 (Q2 in Scientific Journal Rankings) in “Materials Science: Surfaces, Coatings, and Films’’ in 2020. In recent years, we have also significantly reduced our manuscript turnaround time. Currently, the median publication time is 33 days.
Among all sections, the “Thin Films’’ section of Coatings is doing particularly well, with more than 170 articles and 60 Special Issues published since its inception in November 2019. On this occasion, we would like to thank our Editorial Board Members, Managing Editors, Reviewers, and Authors for their contributions and continuous support.
Help us celebrate our 10th anniversary by submitting your research article to the Anniversary Edition!
We invite you to contribute a review article or an original research paper for possible publication in “10th Anniversary of Coatings: Invited Papers for Thin Films Section”.
