Low and high molecular weight compounds with spatially extended p-p or p-n-p bonding systems have great potential for applications in modern fields of science and technology, such as organic optoelectronics and organic photonics, which have seen intense development in recent years. Although remarkable progress has been made and some technologies have grown from a research laboratory concept to commercial applications there is still room for improvement of device parameters including efficiency, lifetime, and cost-effectiveness. A key issue in the development of organic optoelectronics and photonics is organic material and device architecture. The aim of this Special Issue, entitled "Advances in Materials for Organic Optoelectronics and Photonics” is to address current challenges associated with design, synthesis, and characterization of new functional materials aiming at their utilization in optoelectronic and photonic devices.
I would like to cordially invite you to share your outstanding achievements and submit a paper 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 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.
