September 2020 | Special Issue in the Journal Crystals
A special issue in the MDPI journal Crystals titled "Atomistic simulations for exploring the mechanics of crystals" will be edited by Dr. Arun Prakash of the MiMM group and Dr. Julien Guenole, Univ. Lorraine, Metz. The special issue is now open for submission.
We invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue, which is a unique interdisciplinary forum covering multiple aspects of atomistic studies of mechanical behavior of crystals, ranging from structure generation, classical simulation studies, through linking atomistic studies to higher length scales, to visualization, and analysis of atomistic data.
For researcher who intended to published their work in a gold open access journal, this Special Issue is an excellent oportunity to gather state of the art studies and exploratory works in an impactfull widely accessible publication.
For more details, please click here.
Deadline for submission is 31. January 2021.
