We would like to take this opportunity to invite researchers to contribute their original research work and review articles to this Special Issue on “Recent Trends in Coatings and Thin Film: Modeling and Application” to be published in Coatings. The goal of this Special Issue is to address challenges and current issues that either advance the state-of-the-art of experimental, numerical and theoretical methodologies or extends the bounds of existing methodologies to new contributions related to coatings and thin film containing whichever, magnetic, multiphase, material science, nanotechnology, surfaces, interfaces and mechanical sensing properties. We hope that this issue will, not only provide an overall picture and most up-to-date findings to readers from the scientific community working in the field, but would also benefit the industrial sectors in specific market niches and end users.
Potential topics dealing with the following subheadings are deemed suitable for publication (but are not limited to):
- Development and characterization of coatings
- Applications of thin films
- Nanostructured materials
- Surfaces and interfaces
- Applications of multiphase fluids
- Mathematical modeling on biological applications
- Electronics, magnetics and magneto-optics

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 1600 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.
