Special Issue "New Perspectives on Galactic Magnetism"
A special issue of Galaxies (ISSN 2075-4434).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2020).
Interests: origin and evolution of cosmic magnetism; interstellar medium; radio polarimetry; radio astronomy; galaxy evolution
We invite you to submit manuscripts for a Special issue of Galaxies on “New Perspectives on Galactic Magnetism”. Rapid improvements in the observing capabilities of radio telescopes and in the physical realism of numerical simulations, as well as growing activities due to the Square Kilometre Array and its pathfinders, suggest to us that an overview of the current state of the field would be useful and timely. This Special Issue aims to provide a platform to facilitate effective communication between observers, theorists and simulators to advance our field in new directions. It will contain both critical reviews and current research articles on new developments in all aspects of galactic magnetism. We particularly welcome contributions on: The connection with other components of the interstellar medium, including cosmic rays; the use of numerical simulations to help interpret observations; revisiting and addressing common assumptions used in the field; new observational techniques and recent advances in numerical simulations.

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.
