Special Issue "Magnetic Oxide Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 February 2019)
From high-temperature superconductivity to colossal magnetoresistance, magnetic oxides express a variety of extraordinary phenomena, some of which are still not well understood. This special issue will cover a wide range of transition metal oxides that express functional properties such as metal-to-insulator transitions, ferromagnetism, and half-metallicity to physical properties of more fundamental interest such as magnetic frustration, orbital ordering, and spin glasses. Furthermore, some more recent interest in the field of quantum materials has placed complex oxides that express quantum spin liquid behavior at the forefront. This Special Issue will showcase oxides with a diversity of structure types as well, from perovskites to pyrochlores to spinels to hollandites to those closely related to magnetic frustration (e.g. honeycomb lattices). While the field of magnetic oxides is quite mature with the Goodenough-Kanomori rules elucidated more than 50 years ago, there is still much to discover and understand with recent progress in novel synthetic methods and advanced characterization techniques.Dr. Efrain E.

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. Inorganics 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 550 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.
