Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The ferroelectricity, (anti)ferromagnetism, and ferroelasticity of multiferroics—materials which exhibit more than one ferroic ordering—are fascinating objects for fundamental and experimental studies as well as technological applications due to complex coupling between ferroic properties. The recently discovered possibility to affect their structural state and functional properties via external stimuli and synthesis conditions opens up new perspectives in the area of technological applications. Latest developments in basic science, preparation methods, and measuring techniques provide effective tools to create novel technological materials with desired and controlled functionality.
This issue of Magnetochemistry aims to summarize recent advances in single phase and composite multiferroics focusing on their structure–property relations with special attention to magnetic properties. Contributions include but are not limited to the following topics: synthesis, processing, theoretical, and experimental methods to study the structure and functional properties of multiferroics, domain wall phenomena, magnetoelectric coupling, magnetization and polarization switching, and applications of magnetic multiferroics.

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 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 1800 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.
