Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Membranes aims to compile the current trends and research directions of internationally renowned and successful young membrane scientists in one dedicated Special Issue. The idea for this Special Issue has arisen from the numerous and, above all, brilliant nominations for 2021 Young Investigator Award (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/membranes/awards/1361).

In this Special Issue, we invite young investigators to submit manuscripts describing their ongoing research in this exciting field of membrane science. Young researchers are expected to lead the publications derived from their research, either as a first or corresponding author, regardless of whether they are in the early stages of their research careers (undergraduate, graduate, Master, and PhD students) or intermediate stage (postdoctoral researchers or junior group leaders), as long as they meet the requirement of being under 40 years old. Manuscripts covering original research as well as review articles, short communications, and perspective articles are acceptable for submission. With this new initiative, we wish to strengthen the networking of young researchers, paving the way to later stages of their research careers.

We are looking for your contributions!
