Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The focus of this Special Issue of Fluids is on the recent advances in the realm of liquid films in the broad context of their theory and applications.  This rapidly developing area of fluid dynamics and soft matter physics includes, but is not limited to such phenomena as stability of interfacial flows, Marangoni flow, Faraday waves and vibration, spinodal decomposition and Van der Waals forces, dewetting processes, deposition of coating layers and biofilms.

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.
