    Special Issue on Rare Earth Materials


    Rare earth elements are a group of seventeen chemical elements that occur together in the periodic table. Rare earth metals and alloys that contain them are used in many devices that people use every day such as computer memory, DVDs, rechargeable batteries, cell phones, catalytic converters, magnets, fluorescent lighting and much more. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of rare earth materials.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring rare earth materials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Uses of rare earth elements
    • Rare earth alloy
    • Rare earth functional materials
    • Rare earth properties
    • Rare earth industry and environmental protection
    • Applications of rare earth


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Rare Earth Materials” should be selected during your submission.
