Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metals is launching a new Special Issue entitled “Current Trends in Steels: High Mn Steels for Cryogenic Applications.” The Special Issue will provide a platform for presenting the latest experimental and theoretical results in the innovative field of high-Mn austenitic steels for cryogenic applications, such as liquefied natural gas, liquid hydrogen and liquid helium fields. The Special Issue covers strengthening mechanism, cryogenic toughening mechanism, hydrogen embrittlement susceptibility, low-cycle fatigue properties, deformation mechanisms at low temperatures (77 or 4.2 K), and other unusual “structure – properties” behaviors. We especially appreciate innovative studies in overcoming the strength (room temperature)–cryogenic impact toughness (77 or 4.2 K) trade-off.

I would be delighted if you would be willing to contribute an original or review article to this Special Issue.

Prof. Dr. Jun Chen
Guest Editor

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. 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 2600 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.
