Special Issue Information
As the largest group of engineering materials, metals and alloys have always played an important role in the development of the world economy. Ready availability, ease of fabrication, and desirable mechanical properties are the principal attributes of metals and alloys. Metallic materials may be divided into two large groups, ferrous and nonferrous, depending on whether iron or another element is the principal constituent. Ferrous materials can be further grouped into wrought irons, cast irons, carbon steels, and alloy steels. Common nonferrous materials include alloys of copper, aluminum, magnesium, nickel, lead, tin, and zinc.
The relationship between microstructure, mechanical properties, and deformation characteristics is critical in the research of metals and alloys. This Special Issue welcomes the submission of high-quality research on various aspects of metals and alloys, including microstructure evolution, materials design, numerical modeling, processing technology, and failure mechanisms. In particular, we encourage papers on the relationship between advanced manufacturing processing and the microstructures properties of metals and alloys.

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 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
