Interests: viscous cosmology; multcomponent fluids; modified gravity and fluids; fluids and branes; electromagnetic aspects in the cosmic fluid
Recent investigations in general relativity and cosmology have shown the usefulness of taking into account realistic properties of the cosmic fluid, such as viscosity (shear and bulk), turbulence, multicomponent properties, etc. The objective of the present volume is to focus on these kind of properties, from different viewpoints, therewith adding to the physical understanding of the cosmic fluid. We would like like to call for papers disseminating and sharing recent findings on a diversity of topics, including but not restricted to:
- viscous cosmology
- the role of viscosity in regard to the phantom/quintessence epochs
- multicomponent fluids
- future singularities
- entropy issues
- the role of the Casimir effect in cosmology
- modified gravity
- electromagnetic effects in the cosmic fluid
Also, review papers are 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.
