Researches in black hole physics cover now a vast territory ranging from general relativity to observational astrophysics to cosmology. Black holes are not only theoretical predictions of relativistic gravity theories, they may well be abundant in our universe, which enhances the motivation for their theoretical study and observation. The present “special issue” is to focus on these objects from different viewpoints, thereby adding to the physical understanding of the black holes. We would like to call for papers sharing ideas on a diversity of topics, including but not restricted to:
- black hole radiation and information loss
- dynamical black holes and trapping horizons
- black hole solutions in theories of modified gravity
- black hole formation in high energy collisions
- black holes in an expanding universe
- mathematical aspects related to black holes and the theory of horizons
- brane world black holes, stringy black holes
- conformal symmetry and black hole entropy
Review papers are also welcome.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Galaxies is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
