Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Composite materials play an important role in the development of modern science and technology. The depth and breadth of the advantages of composite materials and the speed and scale of their production development and wide applicability have captured the attention of many industries that seek to exploit composite materials for their intended purposes, e.g., light-weight and strong carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy composites for aerospace, automotive, and marine structures, green fiber reinforced plastics for fabricating house-hold products and construction industry. Clearly, the choice of composite materials in the desired application is one of the important signs to measure the advancement of the science and technology of the relevant industry.  
This Special Issue is dedicated to publishing papers (e.g., review, experimental, theoretical, computational) in all fields related to composite materials that address recent advances in the research and development of the materials. The key focus are on fiber reinforced composite materials and particle reinforced composite materials, addressing, not only just the usual topics on structural/mechanical properties, but also more novel areas such as intelligent materials, sensing (e.g., structural health monitoring) applications, extreme environment applications, and sustainability areas, such as recyclability and repair strategies, etc.

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. Journal of Composites Science 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) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
