Special Issue Information
The development of high-performance structural metallic materials is essential in many different industrial areas where materials are submitted to harsh environments. The aim of this Special Issue focuses on the optimization of the microstructure of metals and alloys to achieve the required performance under service conditions, modifying different parameters during fabrication routes, such as the control of the alloy chemistry and processing techniques. This Special Issue will be dedicated to a wide range of contributions, starting with those works based on computational metallurgy to improve and design alloys, followed by those focused on the fabrication routes (casting, powder metallurgy, additive manufacturing, etc.) and post-fabrication processing techniques (thermomechanical processes, heat treatments, combinations thereof, etc.). Finally, papers regarding the characterization of microstructural and mechanical properties will also be part of this issue. Studies of light alloys, high-entropy alloys (HEAs), alumina-forming alloys (AFAs), oxide dispersion strengthened alloys (ODSs), advanced steels, and other innovative metallic materials will be welcomed.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
