Special Issue "Selected Papers from “The Modern Physics of Compact Stars and Relativistic Gravity 2017”"
A special issue of Particles (ISSN 2571-712X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018).
I am happy to announce that Particles and the organizers of the conference “The Modern Physics of Compact Stars and Relativistic Gravity 2017” will collaborate to produce a Special Issue, based on the talks presented at this conference (https://indico.cern.ch/event/597202/). The papers submitted to this Special Issue are expected to reflect original work or be a balanced review of a field. All submissions will be peer reviewed by internationally recognized experts.
This Special Issue will contain up-to-date coverage of the themes of the conference series “The Modern Physics of Compact Stars and Relativistic Gravity”, which are centered on the astrophysics of compact stars, physics of dense matter, gravitation and cosmology, observations of pulsars and gravitational waves. The cross-disciplinary nature of this volume, as well as the focus on frontier results, will make it a unique resource equally useful for students, early career researchers, and experienced practitioners.
As the Guest Editor, I would like to invite you to submit your unpublished and original research relevant to this topic for publication in this Special Issue of Particles.
Prof. Dr. Armen Sedrakian
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. Particles 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.
