In this correspondence, we construct new self-dual codes over F4, F5, F7 with larger minimum weights than the previously known self-dual codes, using construction methods based on circulant and negacirculant matrices. In particular, a self-dual [36,18,13] code over F7 is constructed which has a larger minimum weight than the previously known [36,18] codes.
