Special Issue Information
Steels for modern structural applications are required to have high strength in order to satisfy the demands for the weight-saving and downsizing of structural parts without performance degradation. Microalloyed steels, as important structural steels, are being produced massively and applied in many fields, such as automobiles, construction, machinery, shipbuilding, etc. In order to further improve the mechanical properties of microalloyed steels, numerous research works have been performed on the phase transformation and precipitation behaviors of these steels in the past several decades.
This Special Issue covers the various aspects concerning phase transformation and precipitation behavior in microalloyed steels. Original research works on the phase transformation and precipitation behavior during the thermomechanical processing of microalloyed steels are sought. Works aiming to clarify the effect of microalloyed carbide or carbonitride precipitation on microstructure evolution and mechanical properties are welcomed. This Special Issue also seek papers that employ theory and/or simulation (or numerical methods) in thermodynamics and kinetics that advance our understanding of the phase transformation and precipitation behaviors of microalloyed steels. Moreover, review papers on the recent progress in the investigation and application of microalloying technologies in steels are 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.
