Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit manuscripts for a Special Issue of Galaxies on “The Dynamical Evolution of Gas and Stars in Galaxies”. The purpose of the Special Issue is to highlight recent progress in simulating and interpreting the evolution of the gas and stellar disks of galaxies. Hydrodynamical cosmological simulations have made significant progress in producing realistic galaxies. Controlled simulations provide a complementary understanding to cosmological simulations by allowing for higher resolution and allowing the simulation of detailed physical mechanisms. Recent observations from large surveys have presented us with new puzzles, and we particularly welcome papers that attempt to interpret and confront observational data with theoretical models and simulations.

Sincerely

Prof. Sukanya Chakrabarti

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 1000 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.
