Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the parameters of electronic devices based on the phenomenon of electroluminescence have significantly improved. This progress is particularly visible in the many publications and patents published yearly. In addition, many of the developed solutions have already been commercialized. However, the devices' prices are still high in many cases. This is mainly due to the multi-layer construction and rigorous production conditions. An additional difficulty is the need for encapsulation and using unstable electrodes. Therefore, light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) deserve special attention. First of all, this is due to their simple architecture and the possibility of using air-stable electrodes, significantly reducing costs. Moreover, strict encapsulation of selected elements and layers is not required. In addition, the LEC active layer can be processed by solution techniques such as spin coating, inkjet printing, and slot coating. Therefore, we invite you to submit your research for this Special Issue, which focuses on advances in light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs).

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
