This Special Issue, which is supported by the journal's Editorial Board, aims to highlight new comprehensive transdisciplinary models for the design of innovative processes in a range of Science and Technology fields. This holistic approach is reshaping current research and production strategies, which are too often confined to traditional, linear thought patterns. The merging of academic and industrial experience with economic and environmental knowledge will help laboratories, industries, and businesses achieve sustainable growth. We are expecting papers with the power to disrupt and innovate, which exploit combinations of technologies to shape our future processes.
Prof. Dr. Giancarlo Cravotto
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. Processes 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2020 an APC of 1500 CHF applies. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
