Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Corrosion is the root cause of deterioration in various metallic alloy structures and devices due to their interactions with the environment. It contributes to economic loss and environmental pollution and poses a threat to human health. Nuclear power plants are often shut down or portions of a process stopped due to unexpected corrosion failures. Although corrosion is inevitable, its rate and cost can be considerably reduced through corrosion protection efforts and the development of corrosion-resistant alloys, among other strategies. This Special Issue focuses on all corrosion issues associated with the fundamentals of corrosion science, such as those relating to metallic alloys, corrosion protection, traditional and electrochemical test techniques to assess corrosion resistance, and corrosion simulation. Subjects of interest will include the corrosion behavior of iron and low-alloy steels, stainless steel, copper and its alloys, aluminum and its alloys, titanium and its alloys, nickel and its alloys, and others. Development methods aimed at preventing and controlling the corrosion of metallic alloys are also of interest. Furthermore, topics related to corrosion products caused by various corrosion phenomena are also welcomed. It is with great pleasure that I invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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.
