Special Issue "10th Anniversary of Coatings: Invited Papers in Tribology Section"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2021.
The year 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the publication of Coatings. In celebration of this special occasion, we have launched a Special Issue called "10th Anniversary of Coatings: Invited Papers in Tribology Section".
In 2016, Coatings was accepted for indexing by Science Citation Index Expanded—Web of Science, and we received our first impact factor (2.175) for Coatings in 2017. The Impact Factor of Coatings increased to 2.436 for the year 2019, and it was included in Scopus and ranked 59/120 (Q2 in SJR) in ‘’Materials Science: Surfaces, Coatings and Films’’ in 2020. We have also reduced the manuscript turnaround time; presently, the median publication time is only 33 days.
Among all sections of Coatings, the Tribology section is young but are growing fast. We have established six Special Issues since its inception. On this occasion, we would like to thank our all editorial board members, managing editors, reviewers, and authors for their great contributions and continuous support. This Special Issue will collect research articles and high-quality review papers in the Tribology research fields. We kindly encourage all research groups working in Tribology areas to make contributions to this Special Issue.
