Special Issue Information
Hot deformation is fundamental for magnesium and its alloys. Due to the hexagonal lattice structure and the related limited formability at room temperature, elevated temperatures are required for forming and associated microstructure-changing processes. Factors with significant influence on hot deformation behavior are, for example, the deformation conditions, alloy composition, precipitation state and manufacturing history. A good understanding of hot deformation behavior provides the groundwork for the configuration of hot deformation processes, such as extrusion, rolling and forging. Dynamic recrystallisation processes occur easily in magnesium alloys due to the low stacking fault energy. Knowledge of them and their characteristics enables the control of microstructure and texture developments, as well as the resulting property profile. This Special Issue is aimed at scientists and researchers wishing to contribute to the hot deformation behavior of magnesium alloys, microstructure development and processing at elevated temperatures.

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.
