Aerospace (ISSN 2226-4310) - An Open Access Journal
with Special Issue
Usually special issues of a journal are introduced for "hot topics" and are titled as such.
The idea is here, to use the subset "Special Issue" of the journal "Aerospace" at MDPI
for a specialized scientific domain - Aircraft Design.
The current special issue (SI-3/2021) has a closing date of 31 December 2021.
aircraft, design, OAD, configuration, requirements, payload, range, certification, safety, constraints, objectives, synthesis, optimization,
aerodynamics, drag, high-lift, structure, mass, performance, stability, control, aeroelasticity, engine, systems,
operating costs, DOC, passenger, cabin, ticket, price, environment, profit, asset,
wing, fuselage, tail, undercarriage, landing gear, engine, systems.
Paper Type and Content:
In addition to original research articles also review papers, letters or communications, technical reports,
and extended version of conference papers are accepted. An interest exists also in aircraft design education.
Papers will be visible
at the journal "Aerospace" and also alongside the Special Issue "Aircraft Design" as soon as they are ready.
The journal "Aerospace" is covered by many
databases and archives including
Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics)
Rapid Publication: Manuscripts at the journal "Aerospace" are peer-reviewed and a first decision provided to authors approximately 18 days after submission;
acceptance to publication is undertaken in 6.3 days.
Once accepted, the manuscripts undergo professional copy-editing, proofreading by the authors, final corrections,
and publication on the www.mdpi.com website.
Following the successful initial Special Issue
Aircraft Design (SI-1/2017)
and the relaunch with
Aircraft Design (SI-2/2020),
this is already the third SI in sequence named
Aircraft Design (SI-3/2021).
The Special Issues "Aircraft Design" continue the tradition of the Journal
Aircraft Design (ISSN: 1369-8869),
which Prof. Egbert Torenbeek had started together with Prof. Dr. Jan Roskam as Editors at Elsevier in 1998.
The subscription-based publishing model proved inadequate to serve the rather small aircraft design community.
For this reason, the Elsevier title had to be discontinued in 2002. This pitfall is avoided with the
Open Access publishing model used by MDPI for all its journals including this Special Issue.
Article Processing Charges (APC) are given here.
A 50% discount applies for authors from EWADE / SCAD / TCAD (1).
Reviewers who provide timely, thorough peer-review reports receive vouchers entitling them to an additional discount on the APC of their next publication.
This means APC can be reduced to a bearable amount, which is usually acceptable to the author's institution.
