Special Issue Information
Research on the surface modification of microstructure and properties of metals has witnessed a dramatic rise in global attention over the past decade. Surface modification has been applied to metals in order to improve mechanical, chemical, and physical properties—such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, and surface wettability. Surface modification is a possible way to obtain sufficient resistance against environmental attack, when sufficient resistance cannot be attained by alloying addition and/or controlling microstructure. Surface modification techniques can significantly improve the long-term service performance of metals, as well as provide them with certain specific functions. We think that you could make an excellent contribution to this Special Issue.

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.
