Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Traditionally, material research in Korea has been prominent in the field of metal materials. As the research and development of advanced materials create new industries and contribute significantly to national economic growth, the importance of material research continues to grow in Korea. As a result, despite a relatively short history, Korea's material research achievements are leading global technology. In recent years, remarkable accomplishments have been achieved in the research on innovative functional materials, smart materials, nanomaterials, bio-materials, battery materials, and eco-friendly materials. This Special Issue aims to collect an overview of materials research activities in Korea. Research topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Sustainable material solutions to the environmental burdens
  • Self-healing materials for engineering applications
  • Mechanical, electrical, thermal, or magnetic properties of materials
  • Ultra-lightweight and high-strength composites
  • Nanotechnology for multifunctional materials
  • Innovative materials for 3D printing applications
  • Structural applications of high-performance materials

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit manuscripts on the subject “State-of-the-Art Materials Science and Engineering in Korea” for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, as well as comprehensive reviews are welcome. Please feel free to contact me, the guest editor, in case of further questions.

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.
