Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

Functional nanomaterials and nanostructures occupy central importance in nowadays technologies, nonetheless, offer still significant new opportunities in different fields. In particular, magnetic and magnetoelectric nanomaterials can bring innovative solutions for applications in energy harvesting, spintronics, sensing and biosensing applications. Moreover, their unique functional properties offer a vast playground for fundamental science and materials engineering.

This Special Issue welcome both theoretical and experimental approaches, namely by including the design of new magnetic and magnetoelectric nanomaterials using computational screening methods based on genetic algorithms, combined with density functional theory, and/or their synthesis and characterization, towards the development of material architectures for applications, especially for the areas of energy, information technology and sensing aiming to solve emergent societal challenges.

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. Nanomaterials 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.
