Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bayesian models have seen growth in recent years, especially after the increasing works on MCMC methods. In this Special Issue we like to cover all the areas in Bayesian analysis, from prior distributions to computational methods.

In particular, the topics of interest are:

  • Bayesian analysis of complex models;
  • Bayesian analysis of extreme data;
  • Bayesian analysis of categorical data;
  • Elicitation of prior distributions;
  • Sensitivity analysis for Bayesian models;
  • Computational methods in Bayesian analysis;
  • Bayesian decision making.

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.
