This Special Issue is the continuation of the previous one recently published in Symmetry with the same title. Among the wide range of probability distributions available in different scenarios, the property of symmetry (and nonsymmetry) represents an important characteristic when modeling and making predictions. Obviously, current computational advances facilitate calculations that include numerous special functions that were prohibited in practical applications in the past. Hence, the catalog of probabilistic families in the literature has considerably increased.
In this Special Issue on symmetric and asymmetric distributions, researchers are invited to contribute original works and case studies related to this topic. Theoretical and applied proposals that extend the Azzalini, Jones or Marshall and Olkin schemes, or simply valid alternatives will be welcome. Authors are also encouraged to submit applied works in the field of economics (ination forecast, income and wealth, stochastic frontier models, insurance, duration models, econophysics, etc.), environmental sciences (catastrophic events, climate changes, for example), biometrics, engineering (reliability, satellite image classification, etc.), and medicine (studies related to cancer disease, cure rate models, etc.), among other areas of applications. In particular, although not limited to this, this Special Issue is intended to offer alternative methodologies to the existing modeling techniques, and it is open to original research and review articles, both theoretical and applied (empirical data adjustment, regression, Bayesian study, etc.), within the area of symmetric and asymmetric, discrete and continuous, and univariate and multivariate distributions.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
