Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lithium-ion batteries will play a pivotal role in advancing electrification in the automotive industry and achieving our net zero goals. Nevertheless, lithium-ion batteries are facing challenges in existing electric vehicles, e.g., limited driving range, slow charging rate and unreliable temperature performance. These issues hinder the further wide adoption of electric vehicles and their complete replacement of internal combustion engine vehicles.

This Special Issue focuses on the latest progress in the development of lithium-ion batteries, including but not limited to:

  • Electrode material synthesis (new material discovery, synthesis route optimisation, etc.);
  • Electrode manufacturing and structure optimisation;
  • Battery modelling (degradation, SEI, temperature, particle cracking, etc.);
  • Testing metrology;
  • Battery characterisation;
  • Lithium-ion battery cell and pack design;
  • Life cycle assessment;
  • Lithium and beyond (various types of metal-ion batteries).

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. World Electric Vehicle Journal 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). 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.
