Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The magnetic properties of coordination compounds have been a topic of interest for several decades, starting with the study of the magnetostructural correlations and then advancing to the discovery of fascinating properties associated with the magnetic properties of the coordination compounds. Thanks to this new discipline in coordination chemistry, these kind of systems have emerged as possible building blocks for different applications like information storage, spintronics or qubits, instead of their classical counterparts (bits).

This Special Issue of Magnetochemistry aims to publish a collection of research contributions illustrating the recent achievements in all aspects of the development, study and understanding of the magnetic properties of coordination compounds and their applications, focusing on the topics listed below.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Magnetochemistry 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 2700 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.
