Special Issue "Metal Matrix Composites"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2017
Metal matrix composites are emerging as critical materials in engineering and biomedical applications due to their capability to be tailored in terms of engineering properties. With a history of about four decades, researchers have been able to establish synthesis methods for metal-based composites containing reinforcements in the range from micron-length scale to nano-length scale. Current research in the area of nanocomposites, for example, is perhaps the most intriguing. Similarly, the emergence of magnesium and new alloys have opened new challenges for researchers to advance in the area of metal-based composites. Accordingly, the main aim of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for researchers worldwide to showcase their work in the domains of synthesis, characterization, modelling and applications of metal-based composites.

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. 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 1000 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.
