Coatings has ended its fifth year of publication. In this time, the journal has experienced a steady growth and it is now affirmed as a leading platform for scientific papers in the fields of materials science and the technology of coatings. To celebrate the journal, I have the honor to edit a new featured Special Issue. The Special Issue will collect original research papers from the frontier of research, as well as review articles from prominent scholars highlighting the state-of-the-art of science and technology. I invite researchers and technologists, whose work focuses on coatings and related applications, to contribute with papers disseminating their excellent research findings. We are looking forward to receiving your work.
