It is an honor and privilege to be involved as the guest editor of a Special Issue of Materials focusing on the friction and wear of material surfaces. I believe that with your kind support, it will become an important Special Issue, as the first edition collected over 30 articles.
Tribology plays a crucial role in industry by improving the efficiency, reliability, performance, energy efficiency, safety, and sustainability of many products and systems. Tribological research also plays an important role in improving the design, manufacturing, and operation of many industrial products and systems. This can lead to significant cost savings by reducing maintenance, repair, and replacement costs.
A number of scientists studied the effect of surface topography and material properties on the tribological performance of sliding elements. However, accessible papers contain ambiguous and sometimes contradictory opinions about connections between values of surface topography parameters, materials properties and various tribological properties of sliding pairs. In addition, a continuous development of measuring equipment makes more precision measurements possible and as a consequence also makes extended analysis of phenomena taking part on surfaces in frictional contact possible.
Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to collect high-quality research papers that focus on the friction and wear of material surfaces. We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.

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 2600 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.
