It is a great pleasure to present this collection of 2016 papers which the Superconductor Science and Technology(SUST) Editorial Team has identified as their highlights from last year. It was very difficult to narrow down the selection of papers as there were so many outstanding contributions over the year.
The papers selected are from the different types of contributions to SUST including Letters, Topical Reviews, a Roadmap, Regular Papers and Special Issue articles. In each case, the dedicated Editorial team, SUST Board and reviewers have worked hard to bring these papers to you with fast publication times using a high-quality peer review process.
