We are pleased to invite you to contribute to a forthcoming special topic on “Surface Forces, Adhesion, and Friction” to be published in Colloids and Interfaces. This Special Issue will focus on the fundamental intermolecular and surface forces at multiple length scales ranging from nano- to macro-scale. Topics of interest will cover intermolecular forces at interfaces, adhesion, anti-adhesion (antifouling), friction, and tribology- and nanotribology-related subjects. Other relevant topics will include nanoscale organization and dynamics of confined molecules and particles at interfaces and in pores when the degree of confinement becomes comparable with the characteristic length scale of the confined molecules and particles.
Please review the journal’s instructions for authors before submitting. These instructions can be downloaded from the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/colloids/instructions .
To submit your manuscript, please go to https://susy.mdpi.com/ . You will need to register, if you have not done so previously, then follow the on-screen instructions for Submitting a New Manuscript.
When submitted, your paper will be peer reviewed and you may be asked to make further revisions before acceptance. All manuscripts must be original and not previously published or under consideration for publication elsewhere.We would appreciate receiving your submission by September 30, 2019.
We plan to publish this Special Issue in December, 2019.
With best regards,

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. Colloids and Interfaces is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
