We are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the journal Entropy in 2018. The growth of Entropy has only been possible because authors, reviewers, editors, and all people working in some way for the journal have joined their efforts for years. Thank you for your confidence and your enthusiasm.
To mark that important milestone, a special issue entitled “Approximate and Sample Entropy” is being launched. Based on information theory, a number of entropy measures have been proposed since the 1990s to assess systems’ irregularity. S.M. Pincus (1991) introduced Approximate Entropy as a measure of the regularity of a process that is related to Shannon’s entropy but suitable for characterizing short and noisy physiological signals. J.S. Richman and J.R. Moorman (2000) modified this algorithm to create a more robust and less biased statistic: Sample Entropy. Both Approximate and Sample entropy have received a great deal of attention in the last few years, and have been successfully verified and applied to biomedical applications and many others.
The aim of this Special Issue is to encourage researchers to present original and recent developments on time series analysis using Approximate and Sample entropy. Papers presenting concepts or applications are welcome. Applications can include (but are not limited to) biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, hydrology, pharmaceutical sciences, financial analyses, neurosciences, industrial engineering, geosciences, information sciences, etc.

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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
