Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Chiral structured magnetic materials have attracted considerable attention in recent years due to the topological nature of their magnetic structures, which includes the formation of noncollinear and noncoplanar spin textures with long length-scale modulations. These magnets represent promising components for future nanometer-scale quantum-information technology applications. Magnetic skyrmions and chiral soliton lattice are examples of noncollinear spin textures which offer great potential for future spintronic applications. 

In this Special Issue, entitled “Advances in Chiral Magnetism”, the following topics will be covered:

  • Noncentrosymmetric and chiral magnetism;
  • Skyrmions;
  • Chiral soliton lattice;
  • Nanoscopic chiral domain walls;
  • Soliton pair dynamics;
  • Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction.

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.
