Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Modeling and simulations play a key role in materials science. Recent progress in the research of gel-based materials has been strongly reinforced by modeling and simulation studies. With a growing interest in this subject within the gel community, we welcome submissions related to modeling and simulation of hydrogels, aerogels, and other gel-based materials. Special attention will be given to studies focusing on modeling of their structure–property relations. The properties of interest are thermal, mechanical, acoustic or textural. We encourage submissions describing physically motivated modeling approaches, such as micromechanical ones or molecular dynamics simulations, as well as multiscale models. Also of interest are submissions related to the modeling of the synthesis process of the gels or aerogels. Submissions on fundamental materials research as well as on application-oriented simulation-based research are welcome.

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. Gels 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 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.
