Special Issue "Improving Alloy Material Performance: Alloy design, Structural Modification and Advanced Processing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
As the guest editor of the following Special Issue of Materials, I would like to invite you to contribute a research paper to the Issue on the topic of “Improving Alloy Material Performance: Alloy Design and Structural Modification”. The Issue will cover several scientific problems. Among them, the main focus will be aimed at alloy design (new alloys composition, influence of alloying elements on properties of common alloys, and new alloys processing leading to structural changes), a description of the microstructure influence on the improvement of alloy properties (e.g., additive manufacturing, powder metallurgy processing, rapid solidification, and grain boundary engineering), and the new unique properties of alloy materials (e.g., self-reporting materials, self-healing materials, and biodegradable alloys).
I would greatly appreciate a reply to this invitation, letting us know whether you would like to contribute.
We look forward to collaborating with you in the near future.
Dr. Alena Michalcová
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. 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 2000 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.
