This paper presents a current research trend for micro- and nano-structure controls using severe plastic deformation (SPD). The survey is carried out based on the special issue published in July and August, 2019, in Materials Transactions (Vol. 60, Nos. 7 and 8). The SPD-related research is rapidly growing particularly after the year 2000. The research ranges over processing, modeling, simulation, synthesis, characterization and evaluation. Among the various topics, a brief introduction is given for innovative approaches which will further promote the development of the SPD-related research.
