Coatings is going to reach a remarkable milestone by publishing its 10th 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 in Corrosion, Wear and Erosion 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 ‘’Corrosion, Wear and Erosion’’ section is doing extremely well, having published 142 articles and 29 Special Issues since its inception in January 2020. 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. Please help us to celebrate our 10th anniversary and submit your review article to the Anniversary Edition.
We would like to invite you to contribute a comprehensive review article or an original research paper, for peer-review and possible publication.

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. Coatings 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 1800 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.
The below list represents only planned manuscripts. Some of these manuscripts have not been received by the Editorial Office yet. Papers submitted to MDPI journals are subject to peer-review.

Title: Thin Protective Coatings On Metals Formed By Organic Corrosion Inhibitors In Neutral Environments
Authors: Yu. I. Kuznetsov, G. V. Redkina
Affiliation: Frumkin Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, 119071 Russia
Protection of metals in neutral media with pH 5 ÷ 9 (in humid atmospheres and various aqueous solutions) can be achieved by the formation of thin coatings (up to several tens of nm) on their surfaces due to adsorption and more complex chemical interaction of organic corrosion inhibitors (OCIs) with the protected metal. The overeview contains three sections. In the first of them, the coatings are formed in aqueous solutions, and in the second, in organic solvents. Here, their preparation and assessment of the effectiveness of protection of metals by coatings formed mainly by the most well-known OCIs classes (carboxylates, organophosphates and phosphonates, azoles and trialkoxysilanes) are considered. The third section discusses the features of the protection of metals in the vapor-gas phase, i.e. volatile OCIs and a relatively new type of protection against atmospheric corrosion of metals by the so-called chamber inhibitors (ChIs). OICs with relatively low volatility under normal conditions can be used as ChIs. To obtain a protective coating on the surfaces of metal products, they are placed in a chamber, inside which an increased concentration of vapors of the ChI is maintained due to an increase in temperature. The review focuses on the protection of iron and steels, copper, zinc and aluminum alloys.
