Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Symmetry describes the shape of a data distribution and is a central notion in statistics and data science. For example, when working with symmetric models, it is only necessary to model half of the model.

The aim of this Special Issue is to assemble innovative papers on theory, methodology, and applications of symmetric/asymmetric mathematical models and methods, applied to various areas of science.

We encourage submissions presenting original works with high scientific merit on statistical, computational, and mathematical approaches with an emphasis on behavioral science, biology, biomedical sciences, computer science, data analytics, economics and management, engineering, epidemiology, genomics and genetics, and medicine and social science.

Innovative applications and case studies in any scientific fields are welcome. Contributed papers covering, but not limited to, the following topics are expected:

  • Big data analysis
  • Biostatistics
  • Computational methods
  • Data examples
  • Economic statistics
  • Engineering statistics
  • Experimental design
  • Mathematical models
  • Mathematics and Statistics in Biology
  • Matrix Analysis
  • Multivariate Analysis
  • Simulation experiments
  • Survival analysis
  • Statistical Classification
  • Statistical Inference
  • Statistics in Medicine
  • Symmetrical/asymmetric Distributions
  • Symmetric/asymmetric models.

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 1800 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.
