About Symmetry


Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994), an international and interdisciplinary scientific journal, publishes reviews and regular research papers. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and/or methodical details must be provided, so that results can be reproduced. There are in addition three unique features:

  • Manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be particularly welcomed.
  • Comments on any related papers published in this journal and other journals can be published as short letters.
  • Electronic files regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, will be deposited as supplementary material.


The journal covers research on symmetry/asymmetry phenomena wherever they occur in all aspects of natural sciences. The research scope includes six broad subjects comprising the following sections:

Symmetry and asymmetry in Mathematics:

Mathematics and Symmetry/Asymmetry

Symmetry and asymmetry in Computer Science:

Computer Science and Symmetry/Asymmetry

Symmetry and asymmetry in Engineering Science:
