Special Issue "Particle Physics and Quantum Gravity Implications for Cosmology"
A special issue of Galaxies (ISSN 2075-4434).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2013)
Various fields of study in theoretical particle physics and quantum gravity are having profound impacts on cosmology. Our understanding of the universe has been and continues to be deeply altered by advancements in these fields. The present “special issue” is to focus on the current cosmological implications of fields within these two realms. We would like to call for papers disseminating and discussing implications for cosmology resulting from areas of particle physics and quantum gravity, including, but are not limited to:
- brane interactions
- loop quantum gravity
- Horava-Lifshitz gravity
- trans-Planckian physics
- causal dynamical triangulation
- causal sets
- non-commutative geometries
Review papers are also welcome.
Prof. Dr. Gerald B. Cleaver
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. Galaxies 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.
