The relationship between entropy and information theory has a long history and has led to many important results, as well as to applications in fields outside of mathematics and physics. This Special Issue will focus on applications of Shannon information theory to the measurement of entropy in mathematical systems and models, primarily those based on graphs or networks. Theoretical papers, as well as those reporting on experimental results, are welcome. Suggested topics include:
- Information-theoretic measures on complex networks
- Shannon Entropy measures on random graphs
- Applications of information-theoretic measures in chemistry, biology, social sciences and the humanities

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
