Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Steels have been with us for several millennia, and thanks to the strenuous efforts of materials researchers, they now form the backbone of modern society due to the versatility of their mechanical and functional properties, combined with their low price and recyclability. There are different types of steel, each carrying different chemical, physical and microstructural features and properties. Therefore, steels have been used by every major industry on the planet to fabricate everything from sewing needles to oil tankers, as well as the tools required to produce them.

In this Special Issue, we seek to provide a wide array of research articles on recent advances in the areas of steel chemistry design, thermo-mechanical processing of steels, physical simulation of metallurgical processes, steels’ characterization using cutting-edge experimental and structural metallurgy techniques, and the development of theoretical tools and advanced models to predict their microstructure and properties during or after thermo-mechanical processing. We hope that this Special Issue will serve as an extra platform, showing the current state-of-the-art and latest developments in this field.

The main objective of this Special Issue is to facilitate a more intense development in this area of research and to showcase these recent developments to industry. We hope that this Special Issue will help the steel research community to formulate new challenging problems and directions in this exciting field of metallurgy, as well as motivating young researchers and raising their interest to address these problems.

As guest editors of this Special Issue, we would like to thank the Editors of Materials, who made this Special Issue possible. We also thank in advance the prospective authors and reviewers of the selected papers in this Special Issue for their unrelenting commitment to the advancement of science.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
