Special Issue "Entropy and Cardiac Physics II"
A special issue of Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2017)
Prof. Dr. Herbert Jelinek
Cardiac physics is a rapidly expanding field that encompasses the electrical activity of the heart, from the cellular level to the conduction system, and includes investigations of basic science, engineering, physics, and clinical findings. This Special Issue aims to collect articles that address novel techniques and methods, based on entropy, to describe molecular, cellular, tissue, and whole organ function. Contributions are welcomed from a wide range of disciplines that highlight interdisciplinary approaches and increase our understanding of cardiac function in health and disease.
For this Special Issue, we welcome submissions related to the use of entropy measures in cardiac physics. Contributions need to highlight the benefit of using entropy measures in all areas of cardiac physics, from the molecular to the whole organ level.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Molecular mechanisms
- Channel gating
- Image analysis
- Heart rate analysis
- Autonomic nervous system
- Clinical applications
Provided they address the use of entropy measures.

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 1500 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.
