Special Issue in Polymers: Simulations of Polymers
This Special Issue focusses on the current state-of-the-art of simulations of polymeric materials. The simulation of polymeric materials has come of age, and true prediction of physical and mechanical properties is now feasible. Polymeric materials are used widely in coating and structural applications, as well as for components of composites.
This Special Issue is the second part of “Simulations of Polymers”, which aims to present new insights into the simulation of all types of polymers. The goal of this second Special Issue remains the same as the first, but we are more focussed on multiscale modelling of polymers.
We cordially invite experts in the field of polymer simulations to submit papers that discuss the latest research in the area or summarize selected areas of the field to this Special Issue. The scope of the Special Issue encompasses all methods of polymer simulation from atomistic to larger scale simulations.Dr. Brendan Howlin

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. Polymers 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 1500 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.
