The awareness on the phenomenon of spin crossover dates back to almost a century ago, however, it still attracts increasing attention by researchers from various disciplines. Thus, the desire to better explain its fundamentals and exploit its potential as a molecular switching property illuminates new contributions by synthetic chemists, theoreticians, physicists, spectroscopists or materials scientists. New improvements on analytical tools, manipulation and detection of nano-objects, increased computing capacities, or faster time-resolved characterization techniques are exerting a profound impact in the development of this promising field, which is seeing its range of possible applications expanded. We are hoping to offer a portal for some of this exciting new research with a promotional Special Issue of the new Open Access journal, Magnetochemistry, which aims at being a reference among the journals on the old but futuristic discipline after which it has been named.

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. Magnetochemistry 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) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 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.
