Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The problem of symmetry in quantum and computational chemistry is a paradigm of development of this field of knowledge. Modern ab initio and semi-empirical methods as well as density functional theory widely use the group theory formalism for investigation of nature and various properties of different periodic chemical systems (crystalline solids, polymers, surfaces and films, nanotubes) and molecules. Researchers in various fields of theoretical chemistry and related disciplines (physics, crystallography, mathematics, computer software development) are welcome to submit their works on this topic in our Special Issue “Symmetry in Quantum and Computational Chemistry”.

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight and overview modern trends and attract the attention of the scientific community to the problem of symmetry in quantum and computational chemistry.

All types of papers (reviews, mini-reviews, full papers, short communications, and technical notes, highlights) are welcome for consideration.

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.
