The design of gravitational wave detectors and their upgrades is a fundamental phase in the development of gravitational wave science. All the instrumentation and experimental techniques are developed thanks to careful studies based on analytical and simulation works. Moreover, these tools are commonly used to study phenomena observed during the implementation and commissioning phase of the main detectors, to understand the origin, and to predict unexpected effects that may degrade the detector performance. These studies are often fundamental for reaching the sensitivity target.
We would like then, to propose a special issue on simulations and analytical studies done both during the commissioning period of gravitational wave detectors, to better understand their behavior, and during the design of upgrades for the enhancement of the present or future detectors. This special issue will collect all the most relevant studies of this typology performed for the gravitational wave experimental field.
The papers to be accepted in this special issue should cover a wide range of readers in the astrophysical field, including non-specialists, for this reason, the paper should be free from technical terms and acronyms not clearly described.
This Collection will be a summary of high-quality papers from excellent scholars around the world invited by the Editorial Office and the Editor-in-Chief. Both original research articles and comprehensive review papers are welcome. The papers will be published, with full open access after peer review to benefit both authors and readers.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 1400 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.
