Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Batteries play a crucial role in portable applications and automobile industry. However, the capacity offered by the current state‐of‐the‐art Li‐ion technology is too low to solve the increasing demands. Accelerating the discovery of ultra‐high performance batteries will require new chemical and electrochemical approaches to build the next generation of electrodes. While parameters like energy and power density, safety and durability need to be improved, other aspects such as self‐healing of the materials and their recyclability will also become focus points. Machine learning algorithms (MLAs) will play a key role in these developments. MLAs will guide simulations, synthesis, characterization experiments and testing of new electrode materials, demanding at the same time a consolidated treatment of multiple and heterogeneous data sources.

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.
